I am Valentina, and my reason to be is to develop

content that connects
readers with publishers.

A digital content
orchestrator

Living at the intersection between publishers and brands, content and product.

What I do.

Like music, digital content is everywhere. But to make it sound good – not noise but joy – you need to know how to let the pieces play together. That is what I do for a living, and my reason to exist: I orchestrate digital content to build brands, develop audiences, and serve customers across their digital journeys with quality media, relevant stories, and meaningful communications.

How.

From strategy to execution, I cover the full content value chain, from audience research to ideation to distribution, working across the whole PESO – owned, earned, paid, search and social media-. I hire talents and creators, develop teams and networks. I do and support the doers. Technology is part of my equation, too. I worked for global brands like Red Bull, regional media leaders like Mediaset, new ventures and private equity. I have seen many worlds and made some things happen.

Passions and publishing

In this "beta" newsletter, I delve into the intersection between the passion economy and the publishing industry. I explore tools, players, business models and look for solutions to heal the attention economy and promote a better way to serve audiences.

Tedeschi ma non troppo

"Germans, But Not Too Much" – in Italian – Once or twice a month, I publish a long-format story about Germany: I take a piece of news as a start for a journey into the German history, culture and society.

Little data stories

This newsletter brings you little – sometimes bigger – data stories that matter, help or disclose insights, with additional suggestions on resources, methods and useful tips. At the intersection among data science, information design, and narrative.
