• Riccardo Lichene

    Journalist | Writer | Historian | Photographer | Musician

    Hi there! I'm a journalist and a writer based in Milan with a 4 years' expertise in online publications, a graduate public historian and a trained street photographer with more than 4 years of work in the field.

     

    I'm now attending the Walter Tobagi Master in journalism, publishing daily on their channels and my personal blog l'America in italiano.

     

    My goal is to combine the passion for storytelling with my historical knowledge along with the communicative power of the camera to talk about today and all its cultures.

    Riccardo is a passionate person who works with dedication and commitment. He consistently demonstrates a solid work approach with us at We Are Müesli plus a dedication to organise and manage aside from bringing his expertise in public history. He is not only a reliable and forward thinking young professional but also an inspiring team player. Materialism and fantasy are at war in his mind and from the clash of the titans of creativity come new and peculiar ideas every time we brainstorm. We believe that’s where all of his curly hair comes from.

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with Riccardo A. Lichene on many occasions. He is an incredibility creative photographer that always knows how to capture unique moments. He can successfully shoot a large variety of images from fashion photography to landscapes. He sees the world differently than most and this quality allows him to capture moments that are genuine and raw. His love for history shines through in his work and tells a story that links the present day to the past.

    Valeria Pagani

    Editor in chief at ROA Rivista Online d'Avanguardia

    Riccardo is a realistic writer, able to catch interesting moments in people’s life. He has the reporter attitude: always in first line to catch the right feeling without any fear of being too close to any topic. He’s also a good urban photographer and he’s used to study before the topography and history of the place he’s going to shoot.
