Chiara was born and raised in the Roman countryside, but always had quite an international vocation. She studied in Norway and Canada before moving to Brussels, where she works in the field of education and culture since 2013. Passionate about international and social affairs (with a special interest for environmental and gender equality issues), she is naturally inquisitive. She enjoys writing about art, travel, food and photography. Her not-so-hidden love for international food and Scandinavian Noirs novels explains why she has always chosen a Nordic destination for her academic and professional career.
