Born and raised in Turin (Italy) with her twin sister Benni, Sofi has always displayed a love for languages as a means to travel the world and understand different cultures. After her Foreign Languages and Literatures studies at university, she worked in Spain, China, USA, and finally landed in the UK, the place she now calls home. She has been teaching at different levels since 2011 but really discovered her passion for the job when she became a Montessori teacher in London in 2015.
2020 has given her the opportunity to readjust her career: she completed a start-up course and founded 1thousandays with the aim to combine Montessori philosophy and interior design and create integrated learning spaces in people's homes. Sofia works as Deputy Manager in a Montessori Nursery in London and is about to become a mum!
Even though Benni has officially left 1thousandays to concentrate on her career and motherhood, she remains a big part of the project.
“We are in love with the project, such a great team!”
