Riccardo has worked as a Journalist since 1985. In January 1990, he was called by the Fininvest to prepare the first private news broadcasting called “Studio Aperto” as the managing editor. In April 1991 he started working for Rai where he created the first news program of social information, “Il coraggio di vivere,” broadcasted on Rai 2, with the goal of giving a voice to the diverse world of volunteering and social emergencies. In May of 2004 he led the debut of Vitachannel with two productions: “Vitamina,” a weekly program for web television, and “Senza fini di lucro” conducting a weekly editorial on SKY TG24, but both programs were short-lived. In December 2010, he was the author and anchorman with Claudia Koll for “Undicesimo comandamento” on the new Sitcom channel, Arturo, promoted by the Sky bouquet.
