Laurea in Aesthetics (Milano); M.A. in Comparative Literature (U.S.A.); Laurea in Art History (Milano). I've been teaching Italian to American college students, in the U.S. and in Study Abroad Programs in Italy, since 1990. After discovering TED, about five years ago, I have become more and more passionate about translations, and I have slowly turned it into my new profession. My very first publication came out in July 2012, the Italian translation of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society Captain Paul Watson's book "Ocean Warrior: La mia battaglia contro lo sterminio illegale degli oceani" (Ugo Mursia Editore), which reflects my love for the oceans and for the protection of all its species. I also translated Captain Watson's books, "Seal Wars", this one about the cruelty of the Canadian seal hunt. I have almost completed the translation of David Kirby's book, Death at SeaWorld. Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity, and I am hoping to find a publisher soon. In addition, I am working on the English to Italian translations of publications on Early Christian Iconography, transcriptions and English translations of XVI century Italian documents, and a book on the Renaissance Sforza family. My latest projects are the Italian translation of the autobiography of world famous tennis champion, Rod Laver, and the English texts for an exhibit on Ocean Conservation at the Città della Scienza di Napoli. But the important thing is all of this has been made possible thanks to TED!!! You give, and you receive; it is karma. THANK YOU TED!!!!!!!
