Alice CORTIGNANI

CORTIGNANI

I am Italian, from Rome. I have got a 5 year degree in Economics summa cum laude, from Tor Vergata University in Rome.
My professional interests and personal passion have driven the choice of my master degree’s thesis, an empirical work devoted to analyze the influence of institutions on economic growth.
I was employed as a stagier at the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, (Directorate General for Development Cooperation) within the framework of the Mae Crui Program.
Having already faced two long experiences outside Italy (in the Netherlands, during the Erasmus program and at Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, for an interchange), I speak  fluent English and I have got a fair knowledge of Portuguese.
