I am a Set Designer and Prop Maker based in North London (for now, and who knows in the future?).

Design skills and experience extend to Set Design, Scenic Art, Props, Costume Design and Illustration.

After two years at the University of Pisa, (cinema, music and theatre courses) I attended the Academy of Fine Arts, achieving an Academic Degree Level 1 in Scenography in 2011. During my time at university I worked on several productions, in order to develop my scenic skills further. Then I entered for two public examinations to win a place at the studio of the Florence Opera House. Success in these examinations meant that I completed two courses there; one for Scenic Artists and one for Prop Makers.

On several occasions, I have also been lucky enough to work with the famous Italian director Aldo Tarabella. I have also taken the role of Stage Manager and Props and Costume Designer at the Fiesole Music School.

I believe in constantly challenging herself and l want to acquire the skills, knowledge and understanding to allow her to succeed in this wonderful career. l moved to London in order to take advantage of the wide range of theatre opportunities the city affords. Since moving to London six months ago she has taken every opportunity available to me to gain more professional experience, including: three months volunteer work at the Arcola Theatre, working with the technical team; working with Salon: Collective, a company based at the Cockpit Theatre, where she acted as Set and Costume Designer for one of their productions.

My passion for the theatre comes from the innumerable plays, musicals and operas l have seen in Italy and in London, a city l have visited throughout life with my father. l am particularly interested in the kind of work that experiments with new materials; finding fresh and inventive ways to approach challenges and briefs. l am also well trained in classical techniques, which l learned with “maestro” Raffaele Del Savio and with Adnan Alzubadi, Set Designer and charge Scenic Artist of world renowned Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

When l am not working, l paint for pleasure and enjoy running and travel around the world. l throw flags (a traditional Italian sport) and also l am a committed Buddhist.
