Chiara was born in small town near Milan but she has spent her last 10 years between Verona and Venice, where she received her BA in Foreign Languages and International Management at the University of Verona and MA in International Relations and Development Policies at Ca’ Foscari University. During her university years she became Vice-President of a University-linked Cultural Association dedicated to organize acting, singing and Italian language classes in support of international students that were passionate about Italian culture and arts. She also began private tutoring in German and French to children and adolescents. Her work experience started in an UNESCO International Organization agency that promoted Italian literature and history and volunteered in an Amnesty International office helping to organize educational events in public schools. In 2014 she spent a semester in Sydney, Australia studying education and communication. She also trained in new teaching practices that helped Italian students to prepare for the IELTS exam.
Recently Chiara moved with her husband to Washington DC where she teaches to both children and adults in classroom and private lessons and works as Manager and Consultant for Radici Market, an independently owned Italian store.
Chiara joined the Italian Cultural Society, first of all because she strongly believes in the protection and preservation of intangible cultural heritage and on the importance to promote and share Italian language and culture with those who wish to be involved: “My stated goal is primarily to support students and the education sector, I believe in the realization of a dynamic and international educational exchange system in order to enforce the relationship between Italian and American institutions.”
She’s also passionate about photography, arts and history.
