Hi! I'm Italian, and I've been a steady presence in the Wikimedia Movement since ca. 2005 (former admin at Italian Wikipedia and Commons; main focus on copyright problems, communicating with our readers and content donors, partner institutions). Read more at my volunteer userpage. I use that account for all my volunteer work on the wikis.
I can read a few languages, and Italian is my mother tongue. I find that, despite everything, English is a good common ground to communicate, so nobody needs to apologize while making the effort to use it. I truly welcome anyone's mediation to communicate with people unable to use it.
I was hired to assist with the launch of the visual editor in 2013; I helped several communities with its adoption, and I later got involved with other products and features before becoming my own team's line manager.
