First you explore and experience, and only then do you report. This three-pronged approach has served as Antonella Galli’s mantra throughout her career as a journalist and editorial consultant. Her passion for design and her close ties to the industry date back twenty years. Though born and bred in the Emilia region, Antonella lives in Milan and contributes to the furniture & design pages of Italy’s Il Sole 24 Ore newspaper, also covering architecture and town planning. Her articles have appeared in Interni, Grazia, Il Venerdì di Repubblica, Bell'Italia and Bell'Europa. For five years she put together the Interni exhibitions for Milan’s FuoriSalone. She wrote and presented four series of stories about Italy and Italians for the public broadcaster RAI’s Radio3. After graduating in Modern Letters and studying piano, she embarked on her career with the publisher Franco Maria Ricci, where she learned the tricks of the trade.
