Meet Your Teacher

Derbilia has always been passionate about science and a nature lover. She graduated with a degree in Biotechnology from the University of Salento. During her studies, she witnessed first hand the devastation of the Xylella Fastidiosa epidemic in the region. This inspired Derbilia to found Cittadino Salentino in 2018 on various social media platforms.  Its mission is to raise awareness about the current environmental situation in Puglia and to educate on topics about nature and agriculture. In 2020, Cittadino Salentino was a finalist for the Italian National Prize called  ‘Premio Nazionale di Divulgazione Scientifica’ as an important scientific influencer in Italy.
