  • Mercoledì Meet the Southern Chapter Leaders! Daniela Salvioni, Secretary Southern Italy Chapter

    Daniela is a New Yorker, now living in Rome after doing an “Under the Tuscan Sun” stint in the rolling hills surrounding Greve in Chianti.  Her field of expertise – and her passion - is contemporary art, for which she is a consultant.

    Currently she has strayed farther afield, and is writing an abecedarium of interdisciplinary essays on Italy. She is vice president of the board of trustees of St. Stephen’s School in Rome, a non-profit, non-denominational American and international high school and boarding school.

    She joined Democrats Abroad recently because, for the first time in her life, the unimaginable has reared its ugly head: the possibility that US democracy could topple under the weight of the swelling ranks of authoritarian forces. 

    She is looking forward to working together to make sure our Constitution and the founding principles of our nation are not only secure, but deepened. As it stands today, that can only be accomplished by getting Democrats elected, which is why even from afar we can do our part.


  • Mercoledì Meet the Southern Chapter Leaders!

    Rebecca Spitzmiller Chair, Southern Italy Chapter

    Rebecca is a law professor at Roma Tre University, where she also coordinates "Studying Law at Roma Tre," through which the only US-Italy dual-law degree is offered. She also teaches law and business courses at Italy’s Scuola Superiore della Magistratura, Scuola Superiore dell’Avvocatura, Luiss Business School and CIEE Global Institute Rome – and translates and consults for international law firms.

    She is the co-founder of Retake Roma, one of Italy’s most innovative, grassroots social movements, comprising some 85 neighborhood groups in Rome and in 40 cities across the peninsula.

    In 2018 Italy’s President Sergio Mattarella awarded her for Retake’s efforts, naming her an “Officer of the Order of Merit of the Italian Republic,” citing “her engaging commitment to the fight against degradation, for raising awareness for the value of common goods, and diffusing a sense of civic pride upon the territory of Roma Capitale."

    As chair of DA Italy’s Southern Chapter, she wants to harness the potential of thousands of Americans living in Italy and engage them in the conversations and activities that will lead them to vote, so that together we can help restore our most deeply held democratic values in US domestic and foreign policy.
