Welcome to Vania Marinello
Vania moved to Southampton from Pieve di Codore in Northern Italy at the beginning of August
Vania has a diploma in Business Studies and a law degree from the University of Bologna and is a lawyer. From 2002 to 2012 she had her own law firm in Pieve di Cadore and covered family, property and inheritance law and all aspects of criminal law. From 2012 to 2015 she was a court lawyer and from 2006 to 2011 she was also a public prosecutor when she dealt with criminal cases relating to accidents at work and violations of safety. Both she and her husband are studying to become English lawyers.
Vania until recently was a member of the Rotary Club of Cadore Cortina d’Ampezzo and in 2011/12 was its President. She was heavily involved in an interclub project dealing with the problems of young people and alcohol abuse. This involved creating an award winning film against alcohol use and this was used in schools and advertised on local TV stations. This programme ran for 3 years and involved 30 schools.
Her particular interests in Rotary are related to young people and youth exchange and she believes young people are our future.
