Lia Maranto

Lia acts as a web content manager and digital pr for Electric Motor News.

Lia met Marcelo Padin when she used to work as the corporate communication manager for a leader renewable energy company based in Milan. One day, Marcelo told her: “I’m leaving for Beijing, a memorable adventure is coming and I have to take part”. The first race of the first official Formula E Championship. Veterans of communications need a few words to be in line with a vision. So, step by step, an editorial project has been started, taking inspiration from a more and more actual, and less and less futurist, scenario: sustainable mobility. The adventure continues, the vision is growing. We are in the middle of a transition, guys – as Christopher Nolan might say. And Marcelo is one of the few who can tell the whole story, sequence after sequence, of such an exciting, engaging epoch-making change. liamaranto@electricmotornews.eu
