Francesco attended the translation school Civica Scuola Altiero Spinelli in Milan, where he graduated as literary translator from Dutch and English into Italian. As a football fan, he was over the moon when he made his debut for Bompiani with the translation of the biography of Dutch sport icon Johan Cruyff. In 2020 he translated ‘t Hooge Nest by Roxane van Iperen, the true story of two Jewish sisters’ resistance during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, and took part in the Crossing Border Festival in The Hague. He is in love with the Flemish city of Ghent and is currently training to run a sub-3-hour marathon.
