    About me

    I’m a proud Italian and a devoted supporter of AC Milan. In between hundreds of pizzas and kilos of pasta, I’ve also studied theatre and music, spent a year at the Parisian Sorbonne and got a degree in Modern Literature.

    I started training as an actress and singer in Italy. In 2008 I moved to London to complete my studies at Drama Centre. Straight out of drama school I presented a piece of new writing as part of the Old Vic New Voices programme and worked with upcoming theatre company Curious Directive. I also founded international collective Fumatori di Carta/Paper Smokers.

    In 2015 I was cast as the female lead in the Italian show “The Olympic Games Of 1936” where I sang and acted in Italian, English, French and German, alongside Sky Sport journalist Federico Buffa.

    In 2017, among other things, I was one of the finalists at MonologueSlam London, I wrote the documentary Maradonapoli (distributed by Warner Bros), and filmed the role of Mrs Carpenter in Disney’s new series “Penny on M.A.R.S.“.

    In 2018 I attended EdFringe with my solo show DIARY OF AN EXPAT at Underbelly, receiving 4 star reviews.

    Alongside working as an actress, I am is also a jazz singer and voiceover artist: I have had the privilege to record an EP at Abbey Road Studios and was one of the three finalist of the competition Rock The House 2015.
