Ciao!

I’m Matteo (Matt in English) But Italians naturally throw in an ‘0’  wherever possible, especially in the bedroom. When embarking on a new trip, I worry about opening my backpack, in case my mother has climbed in. I love pasta.

Summarizing…

I was born on July 19th 1987 in Recanati, like the famous Italian poet, Giacomo Leopardi. Coming from such a beautiful landscape of blue sea and sweet hills, I understand his melancholy, but I am not sad like him, of course!

I lived in Jesi until I was 18, and I grew up learning everything about the blue sea and nature, above all that we have to take care of the environment.

After high school, I joined the Università Politecnica delle Marche in Ancona, Italy, where I studied Marketing and Management for the first 2 years.
I spent my 3rd univeristy year in Stockholm, where I studied at Stockholm University and prepared my thesis on The Swedish Model. After Stockholm I came back to Ancona for my Master’s Degree. I spent my last 2 months in Nairobi, Kenya, where I prepared my Master’s thesis titled, “Why Microfinance is not working in Kenya”.

I worked as a Marketing Specialist for 3 years in Milan for Marsh, one of the biggest Broker and Risk Management companies in the world. After that, I moved from Milan to London to work for lastminute.com, a leading online travel and leisure retailer and then for Arcadia, a leading fashion retailing company which owns the high street clothing retailers Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topman, Topshop, Wallis and the out of town chain Outfit to work as a Senior Digital Analyst.
