Fede and Jana met at INSEAD in May 2011 on the Fontainbleau campus in France. Sparks did not fly until December, when they were brought together with a bit of help of great friends - Sofia, Milos, Fede Sa and Kevin. They spent 2012 maintaining a long distance relationship, spending a third of weekends in London, a third in Milan and a third traveling through the rest of Europe, helping Jana finish her passport pages in less than one year.
Then one day they got tired of travel and said let’s live in the same city. The options were London, where Fede could easily get a transfer and work at the same job, or Milan, where Jana would struggle with the language and would have to find a new job. Of course, Italy won and Jana moved to Milan in April 2013. Fede proposed to her on July 7, 2014 (the same day as the 30th birthday of her brother).
