In a few months Luca gains space in the channel and is entrusted with external services also for SkyTG24. After the positive experience as a weather-reporter in 2009, he will be entrusted with other assignments, always related to significant meteorological events, including the historic snowfall of 2012 in Rome.Since 2007 he has collaborated daily with RadioStudioDelta, such as a meteorologist. Since 2011 he has been a member of the Order of Journalists of Emilia Romagna as a journalist. In June 2018 he left Sky to pursue a career as a ‘freelancer‘. In September 2018 he approaches mobile journalism (MOJO) which, thanks to new technologies and closely linked to social platforms, allows to reach citizens in a transparent and rapid way. The goal is to be in the right place at the right time and that's just what a ‘meteo reporter’ needs.In September 2019, following the evaluation of the AMPRO Executive, he joined the first and only association of professional meteorologists in Italy. Browsing through the meteorologist's social profiles, it is easy to realise his passion for travel, nature and also for electronics, the latter linked above all to meteorological instruments.
