I am a reporter and visual journalist from southern Italy (b.1989) who covers socio-environmental issues, identity, and culture.
My interest lies in exploring structures of power that dictate inequality and how individuals carve out their own realities in the face of today's most pressing challenges. I have written about how last decade's devastating drought has shaped the gender and migration discourse in southern Africa, followed Italy's revamped grassroots movements fighting for their children's lives and featured female leaders promoting impactful activities within their communities.
I have lived in Belgium, China, Jordan, Poland, and the UK, with stints in India and Lesotho. During my two-year stay in Amman, I reported on technology, development, and where the two intersect one another, while also managing the daily digital operations at a pan-Arab news outlet.
I graduated with honours from SOAS University of London, where I completed a MA in journalism focusing on how the global south is represented across contemporary media outlets. I also hold a master's in communication for international relations and a BA in English and Russian literature.
In a previous life, I was a translator and headline news reporter for Reuters, where I gained a deep insight into how the interconnected global economy works. I am currently based in northern France and available for assignments. For story tips, collaborations and anything in between, reach out safely to c.caraccio at protonmail.com.
