My name is Valeria Amendola and I am from Rome, Italy. I work as a digital and social media strategist in an agency based in Rome. Since my graduation, I research what are the possibilities for transmedia storytelling and gamification, especially as tools for new narratives, collaborations or influences (i.e.: digital/cultural heritage). I have a literary and publishing background, since I graduated in Italian Studies (BA) and Publishing (MA), and right now I am collaborating with my university (Università di Roma, Sapienza) in our Gamification Lab.
I am thrilled to take part to this MOOC. I truly believe in collaboration and inspiration between beautiful minds. Hope to find a local meetup, too (it seems I am the only one in Rome. Could be possible?).
My two keywords in life, not just in this field, are story and play. Everything could be based on these two pillars.
Looking for: learn, do, share.
