In 2023 British production companies Zinc Media and Rex TV worked for the national broadcaster BBC to produce a brand new show inspired by the historical Grand Tour in Italy. I have been hired to assist the conception and the production of the episode shot in Venice, as an author and a contributor.
In 2019 I wrote, produced and hosted a new radio show called “B-Side” on Euradio. The show aimed at discovering how the night-life of several European cities evolved through the years. It focussed on the voices of the professionals of leisure, clubbers and people crossing the city. It was divided in four parts, mixing medical advice and music tips.
Since 2014 I write, produce and host ‘Île d’Europe’ on Euradio. Île d’Europe is a radio magazine about culture and politics in Europe. The topics are inspired by news and current affairs and developed through the voices of experts and local experiences from all over Europe. In 10 years we have tackled the urban transformations in Belgrade and Helsinki, the housing crisis in Italy and the life of EU institutions, the trends in global cinema and the crisis in Venezuela. The content is available in 6 languages, representing the languages I speak as well as the diversity of our continent.
