I come from Bergamo, Northern Italy. I currently live in France, where I am studying social sciences at the Euro-North American Campus of SciencesPo Paris. I am interested in the processes of European integration and in other broader expressions of politics: architecture, urban planning, psychology, sociology and pedagogy. I also like natural sciences, aeronautics, cinema, writing and sports.
Why I joined FutureLab Europe? I joined FutureLab Europe because I believe that a European programme of participatory democracy can re-energise the ‘European dream’, result in higher standards of citizenship and ultimately increase Europeans’ well-being.
Why do I think that Europe needs active citizens? As part of a broader technological and cultural challenge, I believe that Europe needs, on the one hand, active citizens, while on the other, advocates of a political project that will allow citizens to fulfill their potential, to orient the European social model towards their self-actualisation and the improvement of the European community.
