Her professional path, challenging but highly rewarding, sees her as an entrepreneur "of action" with a natural predisposition for innovation, which she sees as a great opportunity to bring together ideas and common knowledge and expertise. Proactive in response to societal transformations, she has anticipated the development of technologies serving citizens, with a passionate activity of research and experimentation in new learning technologies, driven by her cultural experience, both humanistic (Bocconi and Cattolica) and technological (Stanford, CA).
