CEO of Il Giardinone Cooperativa Sociale
Serial entrepreneur dedicated to circular economy
For me, working in a social business is about self-balance. Everyday, I can make a positive impact “just” carrying out my tasks, especially on fragile people, who usually lack tools and resources. It’s good to know that my job is a tool that allows me to change the logics of production systems or services. I like to push people around me to boost their own self-esteem, their personal enrichment and embrace new challenges to discover unexplored skills; these are among the elements that allows me to reach the organization’s goals.
