Location icon France

Professional journalist with broad experience in print, online and broadcasting media in a wide range of domains (international politics, new technologies, culture...).

Originally from Milan, based in Lyon, often working in Brussels, I travel a lot between France, Belgium and Italy.

In September 2017 I published an ebook for the Italian publisher DelosDigital on my travels through the Kurdistan borders, "Nelle piaghe del Leone" (Inside the Lion's Wounds).

In 2014 I published for my own French-based publishing house Phaeluna a photographic booklet on the Kurdish issue, "Rojbas - Bienvenue au Kurdistan" (Rojbas - Welcome to Kurdistan). Photos: Giovanni Sacchetti; texts: mine.

Understanding ISIL's sexual attacks against the Yazidis

Femicide is essential to genocide. Any genocide. It's what emerged from the International Yazidi Women's Conference that took place on March 11 and 12 in Bielefeld, Germany. Almost nobody had heard of the Yazidis before 2014, when the community living on the Shengal mountains, in Northern Iraq, was brutally massacred by ISIL.


Sacchetti: legge buona, applicazione controproducente

Basta sacchetti inquinanti. Lo chiede l'Unione europea, l'Italia obbedisce. Ma uno degli stessi membri della commissione ambiente del Parlamento europeo, Marco Affronte, sulla sua pagina Facebook dice che "le cose sono state fatte 'all'italiana', riuscendo a scontentare quasi tutti". E alcune norme sembrano in effetti andare contro lo spirito della stessa direttiva europea.
