ABOUT

I was born in Lucca, a small, quiet and peaceful town in Tuscany far from the city spotlights.

My mother was a painter and production designer for small theatre
companies, she kept me close while she was preparing exhibitions or creating settings. Hence, I grew up in my mother’s canvases, brushes and paints.

The scenarios taking shape fascinated me; it was like entering a magical and parallel world where imagination became creativity. Mazes, secret passages and wardrobes whose doors were an opening on different dimensions hypnotized me.

Playing with dolls was just an excuse to make a place for them. I needed objects to invent something that was not there, or that was missing, with the goal to create the settings which lived in my imagination.
Studying first architecture, in Florence, and then production design at “Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia”, in Rome, was the next step. I had great masters as teachers and studying with them was an unexpected gift of life.

I managed to combine the knowledge from my studies in architecture with my imagination used in production design. This passion became my vocation.

For many years, I played volleyball, from this I learnt that the success of a team is only possible if everyone has respect, commitment, perseverance and grit. This experience has taught me a lot for life and, today, I also live it in my production design work, my greatest passion.
