My name is Stefania Cardinale, and I write this blog.
temporarily between London and Milan, in Milan but I grew up in Monte San Biagio (LT), went to college in Rome, and lived abroad for some years. I decided to create this little space not because I am an amazing writer (which I am not) but to document my adventures in the kitchen and every day life.
I started RavanelloRosaPallido blog in late 2011, when back in Italy after 4 months fieldwork in India [for a research] and 3 in Haiti for the post-earthquake relief (2010). At that time, I had decided to take a break from humanitarian work. I thought it might be great to write for a magazine someday, but I had no idea how to start. For sure having a blog would force me to sit down and write more often, especially when it didn’t feel like doing it. And I knew that it had to involve food, culture and photography too.
My work has always been about developmental projects, NGOs and non-profit sector, in India and African countries. Today, I am much more focused on researching intangible cultural heritage projects, cultural resilience and development projects (2016). I do research at academic level and I manage to co-found www.lenius.it and to grow more my competencies in blogging, social media and communication on the web.
If you follow me Instagram you probably know that I am more of the visual person that likes to tell a story through pictures, this who I am and how I feel about this space, which by the way it is written in Italian.
I thank you to visit my blog and I wish you the strength to accept being where you are in the moment, set up intentions and trust yourself with patience to be guided where you need to be.
Enjoy your life
