For the last two years I have been supporting a young colleague by sharing my knowledge and experience, giving advice and support, guiding her through the learning process and facilitating her integration within the sector of translation and proof-reading. As well as being an extremely satisfying activity, the relationship allows me to keep my skills up-to-date and to acquire new ones.
Since the ’90s I have been involved in the Association Terra, Boschi, Gente e Memorie whose objective is the protection of a small natural area in the Italian region of Piedmont named Muscandia, which is very dear to me. I contribute by translating parts of the Association’s website into English and by helping organise events.
The Association also regularly publishes a journal of articles I Quaderni di Muscandia focusing on different aspects of this area: natural, social, cultural, artistic. I have been increasingly involved in this project and the magazine has met much success both in Italy and abroad.
In March 2012 I was elected to the Association’s Board of Directors.
