I was born in Torino and at the age of seventeen I moved to Rome, where I taught English and studied theatre for four years. It is within this Felliniesque setting that I was exposed to the nuances of theatricality and the process of storytelling. I have a compulsion to collect things that are chosen for their evocative properties. I use the constructed image to create narratives that oscillate between notions of the abject and the beautiful; between the real and the seemingly impossible. I am interested in the concepts of dualism and illusion, and I am intrigued by the idea of life as a by-product of decay.
