    About me

    I am an Italian actress from Northern Italy (Venice) currently based in London.

    I have trained at Accademia Teatrale Lorenzo Da Ponte where I have later worked within the Education and Production departments (Assistant Director, Assistant Stage Manager, Front of House staff).

    Within the Education Department I have mainly worked with children and teenagers (workshop leader, drama teacher, script devising aimed to children education).

    I have a BA in Languages and Literature and I'm graduating at East 15 Acting School (MA Acting International).

    Italian native speaker, fluent in English, intermediate Spanish and passionate about Linguistics.

    Shakespeare and The Shakespeare's Globe Theatre (Original Practices) brought me to London to pursue my acting career.

    Stage work in Italy includes plays from Goldoni, Shakespeare, contemporary texts and experience in Street Theatre and Theatre in Education.

    Words and emotions: the chance to share these with an audience and make them feel part of a story.

    Human connection is what bring us together, what makes us listen and open our hearts. I feel so lucky that, working as an actor, I have the chance to create these connections, create worlds and give them life.
