Born and raised in Rome, was brought up in a bilingual cultural background and has maintained strong ties with the Anglo-American world. An ever-present interest in the relationship between space and psychology led her to a degree in Architecture and to the moving image as the means to express her on-going research.
Works and believes in cinema as expressive means of narration , and lives of the interaction it offers every day with different people, worlds and cultures.
In finalizing her own perspective, grateful to grow with her team, she considers her work all the more successful if her trait is not evidenced, but rather allows the newly-created space to appear as an authentic already existing site. Interplay of light and shadow and emotion through aesthetics are the major elements used to give service to narration.
After years of work with most important Italian directors as Art Director and Production Designer, has worked with major directors in her country as Wim Wenders and Abbas Kiarostami and in the last years with Paolo Sorrentino (first as art director in "The Great Beauty”, then as Production Designer in “Youth" and in "The Young Pope” and "The New Pope) which brought her to a Nomination as Best Production Designer for the Nastro d'Argento Award 2015 and a Nomination for the David di Donatello Award 2016 with Youth and to a Prime Emmy Nomination in 2017 as best production Designer for a narrative contemporary or Fantasy Program.
Loves nature, people and to travel within stories and in the world.
