Giovanni Marco Zaccaria Portrait B&W

Over time I have accumulated a broadly interdisciplinary education as well as work experiences that allow me to better understand complexity as well as communicate knowledge in a simple and creative way. ​

As my name can reveal, I was born in Italy. But like many other people, my identity is defined as European and my consciousness encompasses the planetary dimension.
