Hi, I’m Fabricio. I’m 28 years old and have lived in Luxembourg City since I was 4 years old.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to write me by email or on social media.

Music, my passion
Music is my passion. I have played the trumpet since I was 6 years old and more recently the piano.
I got involved in the neighbourhood orchestra in Pfaffenthal at an early age and am now active in the Harmonie Rollingergrund and the Orchestre de la Place de l’Europe.
Music in the local association has always been a way for me to make connections with other people I might not have met otherwise.
Therefore, I’m convinced that we need to strengthen associative life in our city.
My portuguese roots
Portugal is part of my identity. Although I was born in Luxembourg and have always lived here besides my studies, I got to know Portugal step by step over the years and also lived in Lisbon for a year.
Even today, I regularly return to Portugal, among other things to visit my family.
During my studies, one course particularly impressed me. It was about the politics of climate change, with a professor who was involved in the negotiations at COP21, which was taking place at the time.
At COP21, the global community for the first time set common goals to limit global warming.
That experience made me realise that protecting our planet, nature and the climate must be the main priority – and that we can do it if we all work together.
My political work
When I was taking part in the coalition negotiations of the second blue-red-green government in 2018, I realised for the first time that you can really make a difference in politics – even as a young person. That gave me the impulse to get involved politically in order to make a difference myself.
In 2020, I became a member of the executive committee of the Young Greens for the first time. In March 2022, I was elected co-spokesperson of the Young Greens and also confirmed for another year in 2023.
Young people will be affected by today’s political decisions for the longest time. Therefore, they also need a particularly strong voice in politics, be it on housing, climate or tax justice.

Local elections 2023
As a long-time citizen of Luxembourg City, I see that our city has enormous potential that is currently not being used. We are also faced with enormous crises that affect young people in particular, first and foremost the climate and housing crises.
To tackle these challenges, we need a breath of fresh air in the municipality – that means new ideas, new faces and a new dynamic. That’s why I’m running for the capital’s municipal council on the Green Party list on June 11.
As Greens, we stand for the urgently needed political shift in the city.
