My first profession was as a nurse in tropical medicine and public health, then I also became a sociologist. With these skills I travelled a lot, working in many countries, in the humanitarian field and research. After 16 years spent out of Europe (Africa, former USSR, Middle East, Central Asia), my 3 teenagers/kids and me decided to settle in Rome. We immediately fell in love with the 'Eternal City', its beauty, the cradle of our culture, and its sort of permanent chaos... then we bought our little apartment in the heart of the historical centre, and, as my kids are starting to travel again, I am pleased to rent our little 'nest' through Airbnb keeping in touch with people from each part of the world. I am now working as a freelance sociologist and translator.
