Maurizio Vezzosi was born on December 4, 1989 in Arezzo. He currently works as a freelance reporter and political analyst.
Mr. Vezzosi is a graduate of the International Relations program at La Sapienza University of
Rome. He is a regular contributor to RSI Televisione Svizzera, L’Espresso, Limes, Einaudi research
centre’s project Quadrante Futuro, Treccani’s Atlante Geopolitico, S. Pio V Political Studies
Institute (Istituto di Studi Politici Pio V), and various other newspapers and projects. In 2015, he
spent several months in Ukraine’s eastern territories, where he reported on the bloody Donbas War
between government-controlled and insurgent areas. In 2016, he was in Lebanon to document the
impact of the dramatic Syrian crisis spillover into the Lebanese soil. In the North Caucasus, he
followed the process of Islamic radicalization and the jihadist movement in the post-Soviet
territories up close—both relevant issues that he currently pursues. In 2018, he was again in eastern
Ukraine to report on the Russian-Ukrainian border. During the same year, he spent a significant
amount of time between Uzbekistan and Kirghizistan to further document the social landscape,
focusing on Islamic radicalization processes in the two post-Soviet countries. In the first months of
2021, he followed the recent proceedings of the National Assembly of Belarus regarding the
political transition taking place in the country.
Maurizio Vezzosi took part in numerous public initiatives, conferences, as well as TV programs
and radio broadcasts. He also held various seminars on the Russo-Ukrainian War and the post-
Soviet political landscape’s ongoing transformation as part of professor Marco Cilento’s and Paolo
De Nardis’s courses at La Sapienza University of Rome. He currently carries out his research on the
topic of Islamic radicalization in post-Soviet Russia, which is due to be published by the S. Pio V
Political Studies Institute (Istituto di Studi Politici Pio V) (Sandro Teti Editore).
He also works as a consultant on global scenarios for companies and institutions.
