about me

Photo: Karin Scheidegger www.karinscheidegger.ch/

I was born in Pescara, Italy, in 1972 and I grew up in Rome. Since 2000 I live in Bern, Switzerland. I am the co-founder with Catherine Riva of Re-Check, a non-profit organization for Investigating & Mapping Health Affairs. I started working as a journalist in 1994; 2002-2015 I was an investigative reporter for the Swiss public broadcaster: for Falò RSI and Patti chiari (RSI) and for Rundschau (SRF). Since 2015 I am a freelancer. Primarily specialized in medicine and healthcare, I have experience on human rights and digital security. Complex themes and controversial issues are my favorites. I am a member of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the chairwoman of the Swiss organization for investigative journalism investigativ.ch and an advisory board member of IRPI and journalismfund.eu. I support the Global Network for Investigative Journalism (GIJN) activities. With Catherine Riva or on my own I work as a tutor and trainer. I am a contributor with the Swiss-Italian outlets area and tvsvizzera.it. Of Italian mother tongue I speak English, French and German. I wanna know more.

Nata a Pescara nel 1972, sono cresciuta a Roma e nel 2000 mi sono trasferita a Berna. Ho iniziato a lavorare come giornalista nel 1994. Dal 2002 al 2015 ho lavorato a tempo pieno per i programmi di inchiesta della televisione pubblica svizzera – per Falò RSI e per Patti chiari RSI, di lingua italiana, e per Rundschau di lingua tedesca (SRF). Dal 2015 sono indipendente. Negli anni mi sono specializzata in salute pubblica e medicina. Ma mi sono occupata anche di bufale mediatiche, diritti umani e società digitale. I progetti collaborativi mi appassionano, soprattutto se varcano le frontiere. Faccio parte de The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), sono presidente dell’organizzazione svizzera per il giornalismo d’inchiesta investigativ.ch e faccio parte dell’advisory board di Investigative Reporting Project Italy (IRPI) e Journalism Fund. Collaboro con il network mondiale del giornalismo d’inchiesta (GIJN). Ho fondato insieme a Catherine Riva un’organizzazione senza scopo di lucro per fare inchiesta attorno a salute pubblica e medicina: Re-check.ch. Insieme a Catherine Riva o da sola insegno etica e tecniche del giornalismo d’inchiesta. Scrivo articoli per il periodico Area e per il portale tvsvizzera.

Parlo inglese, francese, tedesco. In questa pagina più informazioni.

The UK must not hand over Assange to Trump

The UK's treatment of Assange is a national scandal

It is also outrageous that Assange has been abandoned by many on the so called Left

We are living through scary times

And many people are not joining the dots


What about the journalist that your torturing In Belmarsh prison for exposing warcrimes? @10DowningStreet #FreeJulianAssange https://t.co/mCUHkL9014
