Her areas of practice are international litigation and debt restructuring, that means she provides in and out-of-court assistance within cross-border civil, commercial and corporate disputes, as well as within insolvency and debt restructuring proceedings.
Despite her young age, she started working very early, while she was still a student. She worked as a journalist for almost 5 years and as a business development officer in a Sino-Italian law firm for almost 3. Two experiences which taught her, respectively, that she and her community have a voice worth being heard, and that multiculturalism is a strategic asset in business. More recently, she was selected by Manageritalia to be part of the Training to Talent program, where she had the chance to be trained by professional coaches in several soft skills, like public speaking and creative problem solving.
She is very passionate about the topics of education and mentoring, that she considers key tools for people’s empowerment and society’s growth. The importance of true leadership and of a sound corporate culture are also issues she has at heart. In her free time, she loves deepening her knowledge of Japan and China’s language and culture, also by enjoying their cuisine of which she is an absolute enthusiast.
As Membership Director Carola hopes to give her contribution in making PWA a crossroads of ideas and experiences, and a safe harbor for the dreams and worries of its members. Her highest ambition is, indeed, to make one and each of them feel like they belong.
