PhD Candidate, Cultural Mediator. University of Rome, La Sapienza


I am an Arabist and cultural mediator. Graduated with a Master in Arabic Language and literature, I have worked with refugees and asylum seekers as a cultural mediator and Italian language teacher since 2012. I have dealt with cultural mediation in different contexts, including legal, medical, psychological mediation and job orientation. I also teach literacy in Italian. Over the last years, I have undertaken a project of (inter)cultural-artistic activities with migrants to promote cultural and social engagement in the new country or residence.

Research Interests

Cultural mediation, raising (inter)cultural awareness, quality time in reception centres, teaching L2 to illitterate migrants, art and artistic language in inter(cultural)activities with asylum-seekers.
