Federica has an Italian passport but considers herself a citizen of the world.
She holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs and a Master’s degree in Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology. She specialised in food anthropology and body anthropology, after carrying out an ethnographic research period in Fiji on the topics of nutrition, sugar consumption, eating disorders, and healthcare systems. While completing the Blue Book Traineeship at DG SANTE and an internship at AnimalhealthEurope, she developed expertise on food labelling and geographical indications, within the context of the new CAP and the Farm to Fork Strategy. During her Erasmus at the Humboldt University in Berlin and as part of the EVS in a Bulgarian NGO, she trained curiosity and creativity, to turn the knowledge gained through books into concrete and practical experiences, while raising social awareness on environmental and social issues.
She joined SAFE as a Policy Officer and Project Coordinator and she is convinced that with the team she is contributing to make this world a better place, by undertaking relevant efforts and by positively influencing the EU policymaking process.
