Interview – Sky News: ‘settled status’ for EU citizens in the UK

Voting for an Italian or a British candidate? It’s a personal choice, what matters is to vote. The UK decided last minute to still take part in the election of the European Parliament.

Interview at Londra Italia, a news site for Italians living in London, 26 April 2019.
What will happen to many EU media colleagues after the UK leaves the European Union, and after the end of the “transitional arrangements” scheduled to cease at the end of 2020?

Understanding and respecting different cultures is becoming ever more vital to communicate to audiences worldwide.

At this event I spoke about communications in China.
