We are glad that we can welcome a Waldensian minister in training. Giovanni has written this biography for you. Please make him welcome and be kind to him.
My studies have also been enriched by the preparation of a series of lessons on worship and liturgy with Prof. Hiltrud Stahberger Vogel and, by three years of collaboration with pastor Luca Negro at the Baptist communities of Albano Laziale and Grosseto.
As for my pastoral experiences, these have taken me to the Waldensian Church of Verona during the summer. Here I got to stand in for the pastor and I was able to carry out ministry and biblical studies within a multicultural context. This was a new and highly stimulating world for me. Another important experience was being locum pastor for six months at the Waldensian Church of Vasto.
In 2018 I carried out international activities by participating in the Protestant Forum for Young Theology in Europe. This was entitled "Taking responsibility, give hope, being visible" organized by the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE) and the Evangelischer Bund Hessen. I also took part in the international volunteering project promoted by the AIESEC association entitled “woman in Power (UN global goal gender equality).
I am looking forward to spending time here in Edinburgh and meeting both members of the MUC congregation and people from further afield.
