MY BOOKS - CREATIVE WRITING
From my passion for travel, food and wine was born another one for writing.
I wrote texts for sector blogs, in particular for food & wine and tourism purposes, collaborating with online newspapers and local tourism websites.
I have published three nationally distributed travel novels.
With these skills I carry out freelance writing work on request as a copywriter, columnist, text and draft revision, creation of social content.
I have an economic legal background and the ability to find information both on texts and online so I can also range over various areas in addition to those mostly on my competence.
CON IL CALICE IN CAMMINO
TREKKING WITH A GLASS - DESTINATION SANTIAGO
When and how was the passion for wine born? And how far can it take you? It is with these premises that Francesco, an Emilia-Romagna tour guide with experience in tasting, decides to take a walk towards Santiago, following an intuition born almost by chance in front of a bottle of wine. Accompanying him was a friend, Simone, a great food and wine professional and top sommelier. Together they will discover, step by step, that the famous pilgrimage is truly a mine of unique stories and characters intertwined in the landscape of an ancestral Spain. And above all that on the sides of the Way live skilled winemakers capable of making intriguing and artisanal wines, animated by a choice of returning to nature.

VIAGGIO IN ROMAGNA
JOURNEY IN ROMAGNA - STORIES, ROUTES AND INTERVIEWS
ON AN ANCESTRAL WINE
The ancient practice of watering down wine, the superstitious toasts of an ancestral Romagna but also an investigation into the present and future of this magical drink. The return home of an innkeeper-traveler becomes the pretext for new adventures in the name of lesser-told wine: that of Olindo Guerrini's taverns, post-war wine discoveries and many other "autochthonous journeys", to rediscover hills and countryside , of wines and vines such as the famous, the rebola, the centesimino and the Longanesi.

DIVINO ANDINO - TRAVEL AND TASTE IN THE SHADOW OF THE CORDILLERA
The journey of the vine around the world, and consequently of the wine, is like the journey of man. It feeds on chance, on encounters, on visionary men, great failures, successes at times. It is always made of great humanity. Francesco Antonelli started with this instinct, with the idea that the vine could have colonized a new world without the heavy baggage of experience, "When you travel alone it is a bit like traveling with all humanity", writes Antonelli. And it is this willingness to make this trip memorable. You will find the important oenological stages of those countries, but above all the people of the South of the world and the magical atmosphere of a continent, the South American one, which resembles us, but is full of inventions and identities. Wine is a pretext, it is as always the soul of a plot that speaks above all of men. (From the preface by Giorgio Melandri) (AVAILABLE IN ITALIAN ONLY)
