When everything started

I joined the Wikimedia Movement in 2011, after attending Wikimania in Haifa thanks to a scholarship offered by Wikimedia Italia. While discovering more about the movement I also found out that, somehow, I've always been part of it: its vision was very similar to mine and I had the same impulse to fulfill it of the people surrounding me. The only thing I was lacking was practice, so I created an account on Wikipedia, joined the chapter and started to get things done.

I'm particularly interested in Diversity, Outreach and Education and during the last years I've gained quite some experience in these areas, participating and leading projects in my country. My participation in the Wikimedia Projects is relatively low compared to my offline activities, but I occasionally edit Wikimedia Commons, Italian Wikipedia and Wikidata.

In April 2014 I've been elected to the Board of Directors of Wikimedia Italia for a two-years term, in the role of Program Coordinator. In this capacity I supervise the ongoing projects of the chapter and I evaluate the many proposals for activities that we receive. I am also one of the official delegates of WMI in Iberocoop.

If you need to contact me you can write on my talk page, I promise I'll try to answer as soon as I can :)
