Tiziana Perin – EU Project Manager

After her degree in Business and Institutional Communication in 2003, Tiziana worked almost 10 years in the field of international cooperation for development. Her career started in the headquarter of Action Aid Spain and then she moved to the field in Nicaragua, Chile, Tanzania and Mozambique, focusing on administration and management of public health projects with different NGOs.

Once returned to Italy, in 2013 she started working for Social Cooperative Itaca and got a Master Degree in European Project Management (2014), coinciding with the beginning of the programming period 2014-2020. She contributed to open up an Area dedicated to European Projects within the cooperative, in order to foster the innovation and internationalization of Itaca’s services in the framework of Europe 2020 strategy. She has been working as European project manager since then, developing several projects that contributed to a substantial growth of the Area and placed Itaca as a reliable partner in international projects.

Alessio Romito – EU Communication Officer

Alessio got a degree in Political Science and International Relations (2013) after developing a research thesis on EU immigration and the protection of personal data in the Schengen Area.

Being passionate about EU social matters, he decided to specialize in European Public Affairs at Maastricht University (2015). He started working on EU projects by interning at the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) in Vienna, where he was part of the research unit carrying out a study on smuggling of migrants and cooperation with third countries.

In October 2016, he applied and got accepted for the master’s programme in “Management of Social Enterprises” organized by the European Research Institute on Cooperative and Social Enterprises (Euricse) in Trento. At the end of the classroom period, he started a 5-months internship at the Itaca’s EU Projects Office where he worked for the creation of the blog “Itaca in Europe” and for implementing new communication tools.
