About Me - I Have Been Discussed in... 

I am Italian, was born in 1969 and graduated in Humanities. I studied the religious phenomenon of Medjugorje for more than ten years and am the author of the book La verità su Medjugorje. Il grande inganno, published by Lindau in 2018 (old edition: Medjugorje: è tutto falso, 2007).

I lectured on the theme "The hidden roots of Medjugorje", in the Italian sessions of the International Conference “Manipulation, Abuse and Maltreatment in Groups", organized by ICSA (International Cultic Studies Association) [Trieste, Italy, 2013].
