As a little girl, I didn’t dream of being a pink ballerina.
Thus I realized that the only way to fulfill my dreams was to work in cinema.
After high school I moved to L’Aquila to attend Accademia dell’Immagine where I met my teachers and mentors: Vittorio Storaro, Luciano Tovoli, Arnaldo Catinari, Alessandro Pesci, Marco Incagnoli, Roberto Perpignani, Claudio Di Mauro, Luca Benedetti, Benni Atria, Stephen Natanson, Francesco Rosi, Gianni Amelio and Alessandro Calosci.
Everyone of them taught me a lot so I decided that in order to be a good director I had to dig deeply in each field of filmmaking.
That’s why I leaped at the chance when I was offered an internship in HBO’s Rome, in Costume Department. After two months learning how to create beautiful leather cuirasses, belts and bags with the Grassi brothers, the most quoted leather masters in the world, I was hired for the entire two seasons as Production Assistant for the Costume Department.
In order to get back onto the directing path I attended a professional screenwriting course at RAI led by Dara Marks, then I had my first experience as an assistant director with Franco Brogi Taviani for the documentary “A Kind of Holiday”.
I also worked as operator and editor for a small tv show called Europa Più and as a freelance editor.
In 2008 my thesis teacher Stephen Natanson asked me to be his assistant for the editing revision of a horror movie, B Mine, which unfortunately was never distributed.
That was just the beginning of a beautiful collaboration that is still going on: I recently assisted him and Giulia Amati in the broadcasting revision of his own award-winning project, Hebron This is My Land.
In the meantime I’ve been collaborating with Giancarlo Soldi working on Telecom Italia internal spots, institutional and documentary videos as assistant director and for Gambero Rosso Channel as editor.
In 2010 I became freelance and was selected by Università degli Studi di Padova to produce eight videos about Miofascial Pain Syndrome, shot in full HD with Elena Gallina, enriched by 3D graphic inserts.
In spring 2011 I started a new independent Giancarlo Soldi project as production manager and assistant director: an adaptation of an Edoardo Erba play, “Michelina”, with Maria Amelia Monti and Giampiero Ingrassia.
In summer I’ve been involved in River Jordan new music video “Summertime in Italia” as assistant director and operator and I directed a shortmovie with my boyfriend Giorgio Cefaro as cinematographer, sound designer and actor: “The Perfect Woman“… a little divertissement, a great fun!
In fall I shoot and edited in collaboration with Giulia Forgione thirteen videos for Marzotto’s event “Weave the Future” as a backstage: a great experience, really challenging for the daily deadlines.
From november 2012 to July 2015 I worked at Enel.tv, the intranet web tv of the most important electric company in Italy, as editor and motion graphic designer. Unfortunately I was under a Nda, so almost none of the videos I edited aren't online.
