A native Italian, I have been working in an international political and business environment, in Brussels and London. Today I represent the European Heating Industry, while my experience in politics has been as secretary general of the Liberal International and the European Liberal party (now ALDE); my previous business experience includes corporate social responsibility and environmental issues. I live in Brussels with my family, at the crossroads of many rich European cultures.
