Luisa graduated in Political Sciences from LUISS in Rome and then completed an MBA program. She started her career in 1994 at La Perla Group as Art Buyer, then joined Ralph Lauren working within the Advertising Department. After this experience in the Fashion Industry, she joined the brand Durex and started to develop her skills in the Marketing Area. In 1998 she joined Ducati Motor Holding. Those were the years of the advent of the internet and Luisa enthusiastically embraced the opportunities coming from the digital marketing world and in 2008 took over the role of Web Marketing Manager for Ducati.
Luisa started at Barilla in 2009 as Digital Communication and Marketing Manager, then after two years she was appointed Corporate Digital communication Manager and then Global Social Media Manager. At the end of 2013, the Company Chairman Guido Barilla made insensitive comments about not featuring LGBTQ families in company advertisements. It was time to pause, reflect and seize the moment to learn about, grow and foster inclusivity--not only for the Company but also for herself. Luisa was then asked to join the newly formed Global D&I Board, which has worked for the last 5 years to foster more diversity and inclusion in the company.
Luisa is also very passionate about work-life balance, being a single mum of two children. As the experts say, the compounding stress from a long workday can be damaging without the right support from the company, family and friends. This is why she believes in the power of Employee Resource Groups, focusing the energy that can come from all employees at the company. With the commitment and teamwork of her colleagues, they are working together to achieve noticeable improvements in balance, inclusion and equality.
