    I hold a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and a MSc double degree in Economics and International Relations from University of Lugano (Switzerland) and Catholic University of Milan . During my master I could deepen my interest and specialize in EU law and policy, especially regarding EU Trade Law and trade defence policy, which was the topic of my final dissertation.
