Raffaella Oliva was born in Milan, Italy, in 1975 and graduated in Philosophy with the dream of spending her life talking about chief systems. Then she realised she had to work for a living, but she still wanted to avoid locking herself up in an office. And she made it! She currently writes for various newspapers from wherever she is, travelling a lot and focusing on music – her great passion and a deep need – and looking for good stories of all kind. She also loves taking long walks listening to records and reading books in cafes, immersed in her bubble.
