Of Sicilian origin and adopted by Milan, Nicolò graduated in the Classical Arts, from the Catholic University of Milan and studied at the Faculty of Theology of Northern Italy. Passionate about the Bible and literature, he matured a taste for writing from a young age, publishing various collections of poems and some short contributions of a Biblical character.
Through the Community of Bose, which he frequented ever since his time at high school, he came to know the Jesuits at Villapizzone in Milan in 2007. Fascinated by their life, in 2010 he decided to enter the novitiate of the Society of Jesus in Genova.
He studied philosophy for two years, first in Padova and then at the Gregorian University in Rome.
After philosophical studies, he was sent to Reggio Calabria, where he lived for two years serving the youth apostolate. During the period in Reggio Calabria, the experience of welcoming migrants reveals itself to be central, opening up unexplored aspects of his life.
For the past two years, he has been studying theology at the Centre Sevres in Paris, while living at Saint Denis, in the “banlieue”, in a popular, peripherical context.
Together with studying theology, in the weekends, he does some part time work as a translator and Italian teacher.
