About me!

web  |  social media  |  knowledge sharing

I’m a New Media and Web Communication expert with many years of in-depth experience in Online Communities, Social Networking and Knowledge Management.

Currently, I’m supporting the Emergency Division of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in managing its online communication through the website, the social media and the mobile apps.

In the recent past I’ve been working with the Communication for Development Unit with their rural radio projects and the CSDI network.

My interest in these days is focusing on the potential synergies between the Internet and mobile technologies. Cellphones are such interesting devices to bridge the digital divide and can be very useful to manage knowledge in rural areas, mostly if combined with Social Networking activities on the Web.

Previously, I’ve been working for the FAO’s e-learning initiative called the Information Management Resource Kit (IMARK) coordinating the development of the training module entitled “Building online communities and networks“.

I have a degree in Political Science at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” and a Master degree in International Cooperation and Project Design. My dissertation on “Bridging the rural digital divide – Hypothesis of a Knowledge Community for Community Radio Broadcasters in Africa” was prepared during a long stay at the AMARC headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa.
