LIVING THE DREAM

October 23, 2017

Films have always been one of my greatest passions, I have watched thousands of them. There was a cinematheque in Milan at the “Spazio Oberdan” that would project old movies and organize film festivals. I’d go there 3 to 4 times a week and sometimes spend the whole day there. One day I went in…

THE GREATEST GIFT

October 16, 2017

After many years in the Fashion world, I had come to a point where I felt that I needed a change. Theater reconnected me to a higher truth and triggered in my head questions like: “Who am I? What am I doing? Is this really the Life I want?”.  At that time I couldn’t consciously…

THE THEATER DAYS

October 9, 2017

One day, during a summer holiday I was entertaining some friends with skits and jokes and a dear friend of mine told me “I think you should consider Acting”.

I’ve never experienced the idea of a traditional family made up of a Mom, a Dad and brothers, and sisters.  My dad had 3 other kids with two other different women and although I’ve always loved my step-siblings, we grew up apart, had very different lives…

PINOCCHIO STARTED IT

September 12, 2017

When I was 2 years old, after picking me up from the kindergarten down the street, my grandma would read me the book of Pinocchio. It was like a ritual that would happen every afternoon in order to keep me quiet. I was a precocious and smart little kid (my mom has bragged about this…

THE STAGE OF LIFE

September 11, 2017

All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts (…) – WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE – As you like it, Act II, Scene VII   I’ve been addicted to stories my entire Life. I’ve read them in…
