Lisa Pertot

In a nutshell, tell us about yourself.

I grew up in Trieste in Italy, where I studied International Relations. During my studies I decided to travel to Siberia for spending 6 weeks volunterring. There, for the first time I had the chance to understand how exciting can be living in a foreign country and getting to know different cultures and approaches to life.

After that I spent several months in Spain, France, Russia again and ended up living in Madrid, where I have been working for the last 5 years. That first experience abroad allowed me to fall in love with Russia first, and then to understand that my ideal job needed to offer me the opportunity to interact with people and organisations from different countries and regions, which is exactly what I am doing now at E Co.

What are your loves?

My family, my cats, my friends, any genre of music, the sea, classic novels (especially Russian classics), Madrid and Russia (I’m a little obsessed with this country).

Name three things on your bucket list

Speaking fluent Russian, becoming a decent/good tennis player and finally visiting Rome.

What’s the best holiday you’ve ever had?

Spending my birthday with my friends in Tenerife in a huge house with a swimming pool in February and feeling as it was Summer.

Which book has changed your life?

The Leopard by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa.
