A daily reporter for La Repubblica, Cuzzocrea has covered all the major political events of the past decade.
Born in Reggio Calabria in 1974, Cuzzocrea earned a degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures in Rome, studied journalism in Urbino, and trained in the newsrooms of Tg3, Radio Capital and Repubblica.it. She has written for Diario di Enrico Deaglio, Il Venerdì and D, as well as being a frequent TV guest on talk shows such as DiMartedì, Otto e mezzo, and Piazzapulita. On occasion, she also produces the press review for RadioTre Prima Pagina.
Cuzzocrea focused on daily national and international news for Radio Capital in the early 2000s, before moving to Repubblica TV. In 2011 she switched to La Repubblica’s political section, where she specializes in interviews, investigations, and in-depth reporting. She has covered topics ranging from parliamentary news during the end of the second Italian Republic to the beginnings of the 5 Star Movement and its entrance into Italian politics. Additionally, she has run events, moderated debates, and held public interviews on politics, economics, gender equity, violence against women, schools and youth, and European institutions. Currently, Cuzzocrea teaches a course on political journalism at Luiss in Rome, where she lives with her husband and two children. Her first book will be published in March with the publishing house Piemme.
