From Monza in Lombardy, Roberta Pellegatta frequented classical high school studies before graduating in art history in Milan, where she still resides. An author, while also a radio buff, she worked for Lombardy radio stations, Radio CNR and Radio Donna, before joining Radio24 in 1999. Initially a programme presenter with Radio24, she later moved to the newsroom as a professional newscaster and journalist. A relative late-comer to the joys of gardening thanks to her terrace pot plants, she looks forward to seeing them thrive in a real garden!
Passionate about gardening, she hopes to share her newly-discovered “green fingers” with her audience. Who knows, her "Secret Garden" radio series might help turn the drab city into an oasis of colour and greenery.
