About Me

I am a Digital, Media and Telecommunications lawyer. I am ranked by Legal500 as leading individual and by Chambers Europe in Band 1. I am also recommended by Who’s Who Legal, Top Legal and Guide to the World’s Leading Technology, Media & Telecommunications Lawyers.

My focus is advising clients on regulatory and contractual aspects within the digital/media and telecommunication sector, such as exploitation of digital content, TV, internet, advertising and unfair commercial practices, copyright, user generated content, ISP liability, electronic communications, etc.  Lastly, I have extensive experience on the regulatory aspects of M&A transactions in the media/technology sector, having worked as regulatory counsel on many such deals over the years.

I am the author of a treatise on advertising, of the entry “Television” for legal encyclopedia “Diritto OnLine” edited by Treccani (the Italian equivalent of the Encyclopædia Britannica), as well as many articles on media and constitutional law on Italian law reviews (Giurisprudenza Costituzionale, Quaderni Costituzionali, Foro Italiano, etc.).  With Oreste Pollicino, I edited the first “Codice della comunicazione digitale” (Code of digital communications – Internet, TV, Advertising, Privacy, now in its second edition; Egea, 2015), and authored (in English) “Modeling the liability of internet service providers. Google vs. Vivi down. A constitutional perspective” (Egea, 2013). 

I am also the co-author of “La regolamentazione dei contenuti digitali” (The regulation of digital content, Aracne, 1998-2013), a volume celebrating the first fifteen years of the Italian Communications Authority (AGCOM), which includes chapters authored by the incumbent President and all past Presidents of the Authority as well as several top-level officers of the same.
