Silvia, Mentor

Hi! My name is Silvia and I’m 24. I studied at the University of Milano Bicocca where I took the bachelor’s degree in Sociology and my master’s degree in Programming and Management of the Political and the Social Service.

I have always been passionate regarding urban studies, particularly about the social footprint that the transformations of the cities generate on the populations that live the urban contexts. Currently I’m working in the field of the social management of housing in some popular and public housing districts of Milan.

I strongly believe in relations, respect and solidarity as fundamental values. That’s why the willingness of build communities of and between people with their stories, experiences, meanings and sensibility, is the leading principle and aim of my current everyday work. We build together a space of imagination and action that lead and drive us in listening and enhancing our specificities.
