My name is Marco and I am a researcher at the Institute of Mechanical Intelligence of Sant’Anna School, Pisa. I am also the Executive Director of the Galileo Galilei Italian Institute of Chongqing.
I previously got a MA in Political Science and a BA in Foreign Languages at the Catholic University of Milan.
Before the outbreak of the pandemic, I was based in Chongqing, a Chinese metropolis full of opportunities in the Western part of the country. I am currently based in Milan, the economic and financial center of Italy.
In the past years I turned my passion for China into a job. It all started with an internship at the Italy China Foundation in Milan, during which I wrote some articles for the “Focus China” project. Later I worked for the International Relations Office of the Cabinet of the Mayor of Milan, dealing in particular with research on China in view of Expo 2015.
After graduation I returned to the Foundation, to work on the “China Awards 2016” project, which resulted in an intense and unforgettable experience. I also worked for the Italian Chinese Institute and again for the Italy China Foundation in 2018.
Since the beginning of 2017, I have been a Teaching assistant at Catholic University of Milan for the course of “History and Geo-economy: the economic development of China”.
