The name Menscorpore comes from a line of verse written by the Latin poet Juvenal. “Mens sana in corpore sano” means, literally, a healthy mind in a healthy body. By understanding the indelible interdependence between the physical self and the psycho-emotional one, we interpret human health as a dynamic equilibrium. Since its creation in 2014, Menscorpore has offered a variety of different programs targeting physical-emotional and social-relational well-being. The organization is headquartered in Treviglio, east of Milan, our family’s home.

After a master degree in food culture and a ten-year career with the University of Gastronomic Sciences, I am now delighted to direct my skills and passions towards serving individual well-being.

I think I was born an explorer, of both places and tastes. As a little kid, my curiosity drove me to climb every tree in my yard, to peer at their branches and lichens and insects, and to chew on the bitter olives they produced—until my stomach rebelled. (Olives remain my favorite food to this day, despite their early uncomfortable effects!)

In parallel to my professional experiences, yoga became part of my life in 2012, a point of contact for listening to the self, being in movement, and sustaining a body that moves a lot! In 2018, I became an instructor (RYS 200 – Yoga Alliance), and started leading classes at the Studio YOGAARYA asd in Alba.

In 2014, I founded Menscorpore with my brother, Nicola. Our objective is to share practices related to well-being, through food, healthy relationships, and physical activity.

MensCorpore Experiences specifically address those businesses and organizations that want to take care of their people. My aim is to create (and sometimes lead) learning experiences that are based in mindfulness, and which valorize the natural and gastronomic resources of the regions in which our programs are offered.
