I am a lawyer admitted to the Bar in Italy. I am responsible for EU legal affairs at the Italian Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks and Environment, the Vice-Chair of the European Policy Unit at the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER), and short-term legal expert at ACER (European Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators). I was a seconded legal expert at ACER between 2013-2015 and formerly a lawyer at the European Court of Human Rights. I was lecturer in EU Law at the University of Strasbourg and have published several annotations to judgments of the European Court of Justice, displayed on the website of the Court of Justice of the European Union. I also have litigation experience before national courts.

What policy and regulatory changes are needed to tackle network and infrastructure challenges in European markets, and what kind of policy does a digitised power sector really need?
