«We’ve had the pleasure of meeting Valeria last year through the internet as she was one of our trend webinar attendees. Our passion for design and communication has brought us together, and we were delighted that she was able to collaborate with us in covering a design event in Zürich. She is a great professional, very creative, analytical, great communicator with a very good eye for design and details. We look forward to working with her again soon!»
Ana Luiza Magalhães & Marlon Chiumento (SOMA STUDIO Milano)
«Valeria is a long-time collaborator. Our work together started with the online magazine, and from 2015 she started to work with us writing for Polpettas On Paper. In the latest issue, she wrote a beautiful interview with Swiss artist Olaf Breuning. Valeria has a creative and independent spirit, and she is always able to find interesting content proposals for her articles. She is also receptive to feedback from the staff and respects always the calendar deadlines. Working with her is a real pleasure».
Margherita Visentini, Editor in Chief PoP Magazine
Something more you should know about me as a journalist.
I know how to interview people, cutting through the fluff, and bringing to the surface the core of what makes an interior project or a design piece really special. I write stories in the style of the magazine at hand that leave the reader with a feeling of being part of the story itself. No matter the content and the final outlet (printed or online media), everything will come with a standard package: accurate information checking, coordination with photographers and other collaborators, and timely execution.
