Since 2000 I live in Bern, Switzerland. I 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. Of Italian mother tongue I speak  English, French and German. I wanna know more.

Nata a Pescara nel 1972, sono cresciuta a Roma e vivo a Berna, Svizzera. Ho iniziato a lavorare come giornalista nel 1994. Dal 2002 al 2015 ho lavorato per Falò RSI e per Patti chiari RSI, programmi d’inchiesta della Televisione pubblica svizzera di lingua italiana (RSI) e per Rundschau della TV pubblica svizzera 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 sorveglianza. 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 dell’advisory board di Investigative Reporting Project Italy (IRPI) e di Journalism Fund. Sono una sostenitrice del 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.
