Curriculum Vitae

Born in Italy, in March, between films and cameras, wrapped in the smell of the dark room. At less than six, she poses and takes photos of her dolls with a manual reflex: photography, which for her family, however interesting, is a job, turns into passion for her, that she deepens by studying photography at the IED of Rome, obtaining the Master in Culture of Photography at the CRAF of Spilimbergo, finally graduating as a designer at the architecture faculty of the Second University of Naples. During the training course, she studies and meets illustrious names in the world of photography, such as Gianfranco Arciero, Italo Zannier, Charles Henri Favord, Anne Cartier Bresson, Walter Rosenblum, Erich Hartmann.

Over the years, she works with Italian and foreign photographers of international relevance. She contributes to specialized magazines such as the Cinema Sessanta magazine directed by prof. Mino Argentieri. For years she manages Posillipo’s photography studio. She works for both C.E.I. and the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Cultural Heritage as responsible for the photographic shooting and archiving. She creates multimedia videos for PEUGEOT Italy and other companies. In parallel, she explores individual and collective research paths. For the Italian Embassy in Yerevan – Armenia, she works on the project Traces. She has been represented by the following art Galleries: Studio Legale, Aa29 Project Room, and currently IPERCUBO.
