Marina Ruberto is (more or less in this order) a copywriter, editor, scriptwriter and author of short stories. Every now and then she masquerades as a journalist and, for T'insegno Milano, was astonished to discover her talent for wringing information out of people.

Milanese through and through, she lives and works in Milan. She's married and has 34 female plants. She has a website (www.marinaruberto.eu) and a LinkedIn profile.
Sebastian Erras has turned his passion into his profession. He fell in love with photography on a trip to Kenya, where he began shooting birds and orchids with his first analogue SLR. Co-founder of GDT Youth Group and an International Marketing graduate, he specialises in photographing architecture and interior design.

He also has another passion: floors. Sebastian roams city streets toting a backpack stuffed with at least seven pairs of shoes and staring at the ground. He never knows where and when he'll discover the next work of art. You can admire his creations here: @parisianfloors.
Fabio Tabacchi is a videomaker with a very intimist approach: he loves, and has an excellent eye for, detail. He is constantly seeking new and unusual points of view, and has a penchant for artistic productions that move audiences emotionally.

He has worked with Venice's Ca' Foscari University on projects to document the region's artisan firms and present them from a fresh perspective. He loves art and immerses himself in music. He does his very best work when he is given complete creative freedom. His website is www.fabiotabacchi.com
Over the course of his career, Miguel Cáceres has been a scientific researcher, a PR manager, event planner and scriptwriter for TV documentaries. Today he's a journalist. He loves knowledge and culture, and wants to find creative ways of bringing them closer to the public.

He considers himself a citizen of the world and mainly writes for Spanish, Italian and English magazines.
Manuel Sesma is a professor, researcher, translator and literature lover. He has a BA in Fine Art and has drawn on his typography experience to write articles, give conferences and participate in international events.

Today he is Associate Professor in Design at Complutense University, Madrid, and, together with Elena Veguillas, runs the Tipo e Editorial project, which publishes research on Latin typography. He is the author of Tipografismo (Paidós, 2004), a book dedicated to typography.
Marco Valmarana is a photographer, graphic designer and Instagram addict. He has a degree in Graphic Communication and works as a photographer all over the world. He has a number of great passions which very often feature in his photographs, including Venice, Murano and its lagoon.

From the moment Instagram made him a Suggested User, his opportunities for work, and the variety of his photographs, really took off.
Pablo Apiolazza is a digital artist who began his career working in film and TV. He has created memorable visual storytelling for international projects and has worked for major brands including Coca-Cola, Chevrolet, Siemens and L’Oréal.

Travel is one of his specialisms, and he strives to tell stories that leave a lasting impression on people and help them see the world differently. His website is http://www.apzmedia.com/
Sebastian Spasic is a professional German photographer with a focus on lifestyle and street photography. His works are inspired by urban subcultures, architectural change and the polarity between people and structures.

He was one of first professional photographers to use the potential of Instagram, is now considered to be a top Instagram account in Germany by his alias @AKUsepp and nearly 300,000 fans. He has become known nationally and internationally for his work for brands like Sony, Adobe, Microsoft and football clubs like Paris St. Germain and FC Barcelona.
