About

tiziana_2bTiziana Simona Rinaldi is Italian born and raised. She is a multimedia journalist and producer whose credits include covering The Bronx for News Corporation.

A repotted Umbrian who moved to New York in 1990, she has worked for American and Italian news organizations including ABC News, Lightworks Producing Group, RAI-Radio Televisione Italiana and the U.S. Bureau of the Italian national newspaper Il Messaggero.

But it’s the new life she built in New York and the sense of place that came with it, that ignited the desire to understand the process of acculturation and how moving to another country affects people’s personal development and world views.

Curiosity became a passion and in 2005 she began directing her growing interest into a career as an independent new media writer, producer and entrepreneur. “Life in a New World – Repotting in New York,” is part of that vision.

Tiziana is an award winning journalist and a member of the PGA (Producers Guild of America) and the SPJ (Society of Professional Journalists). Tiziana holds an MBA from the University of Perugia, in Italy.

    Hi Tiziana,

    I came across your blog and watched your segment: How Immigrant Women Make It in America. So important that we recognize women of all nationalities’ ability to find success no matter where they relocate. Very inspiring, and the reason for why I wanted to reach out to you. Because of your accomplishments as an award-winning journalist, producer, entrepreneur, and blogger who immigrated from Italy 25 years ago we’d love to hear from you.

    I’m a community relations coordinator for SocialWork@Simmons, Simmons College’s masters in social work program (http://socialwork.simmons.edu), and in light of certain discriminating comments made by GOP presidential candidates, the media’s constant vilification in their portrayal of immigrants, and the current migrant crisis in Europe, we’re launching a blog carnival titled #MoreThanALabel (http://socialwork.simmons.edu/announcing-morethanalabel-immigrant-stories/). It’s about shedding a positive light on immigrant communities, defying labels, and combatting stigmas and we would really like to feature your voice in this initiative.

    Please let me know if this is something you think you would be willing to participate in and I can send you the details in brief. We would recognize your contribution to our efforts on our social channels and would link back to your blog on our blog before the end of September!

    Warmly,

    Megan
