Since August 2014, I have been covering the Iraqi and Syrian conflict for U.S. publications. This is a list of articles I have published so far. Before getting into freelancing I was a political staff writer at Corriere della Sera, the Italian leading newspaper for which I collaborated with until July 2016. I now contribute to several Italian radio shows and other publications.
