About

Born in Milan, I have lived and worked in Spain, the US and Australia before settling down in London. I hold a Master’s degree in International Journalism with Distinction from City, University of London and a First Class Honours degree in Italian Literature from the University of Milan.

I have worked with international media companies, non-profit organisations and startups earning skills and experience in news reporting, features writing, social media management as well as visual and audio content production.

I have received in-company training at The Economist, represented Tortoise on campus, and was awarded with the 2020 IMF Youth Fellowship by the International Monetary Fund, being selected among 700 global candidates. I also worked as a fellow reporter with the Solution Journalism Network covering solution-driven stories about sustainable innovation.

At the moment, I report on fintech for IBS Intelligence and freelance for several publications, covering design, sustainable innovation, and technology across different platforms. I created and currently write Meetia, a weekly newsletter listing networking opportunities for media professionals in the UK. Occasionally, you can also find me behind the mikes (or the editing) of a podcast.

I cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone looking to level up their writing.” – Michele Schueli, Managing Partner of Armyn Capital
  • “I worked with Gaia as her direct supervisor on a busy editorial team of a daily digital outlet. She is a flexible contributor, efficient reporter and accurate writer. She’s really communicative and has a fresh approach to journalism. Her reliability and willingness to work on tight deadlines make her a great fit for fast-paced environments.” – Alessandro Scarano, Web Editor of Domus
  • Every time I have worked with Gaia, it has been an engaging experience. She is a radiant, precise and extremely reliable professional. And she never misses a deadline!” – Marco Gennari, CEO of Swide Digital and Editor of Gilt Magazine
