Antonella was born in Tuscany, Italy, in a beach town close to Pisa and Lucca. She is a professional Italian and German lecturer, disciplines she holds master’s degrees in. Antonella has taught both subjects in universities and schools around the world, including the University of Sydney, where she is also currently doing a PhD in Italian Studies. She has designed and delivered language courses, coordinated and supported strategic projects, and collaborated and liaised with multiple organisations and stakeholders.

Antonella is creative, and always looking for new ways of doing things relevant to curricula based-courses, particularly for adult learning. Her teaching philosophy is a lifelong curiosity and a craving for change and improvement. Antonella’s teaching method aims to foster enthusiasm and wellbeing alongside knowledge to students. She also loves meeting new people, and parties!
