Chiara Foglietta is the City of Turin's Councillor for Ecological and Digital Transition, Innovation, Environment, Mobility and Transportation. At 28 she became a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, at 32 deputy group leader of the PD in the Red Room. She works in health care, and the last Covid years were really intense: she opened, at the IT infrastructure level, new departments, watched them fill to capacity, and then shut them down, with the relief of feeling that perhaps we were coming out of a nightmare. Her path in politics, as in associationism, is guided by a precise goal: to give a voice to those who don’t have one, to represent those who don’t have rights, so that society becomes, at least a little, more fair.
