Responsabile comunicazione

«Bisogna avere in sé il caos per partorire una stella danzante» sintetizza perfettamente la personalità di Federica: disordinata, alla perenne ricerca di un equilibrio (è pur sempre una bilancia, anche se atipica!), dotata di un’energia dirompente che trova nella creatività una valvola di sfogo perfetta. La sua sfida quotidiana è portare innovazione negli ambienti tradizionalmente più statici e lo fa coi suoi modi diretti e il suo cuore grande, e con questo stesso cuore si occupa della comunicazione di Destinazione Umana.
