“I always thought that the concept of Home was unrelated to its location; home for me is an intimate interaction with myself and with my surrounding, it´s a place/non-place that becomes strictly essential whenever a material house doesn’t exist”.

My research started very soon as bicultural child, went on studying foreing languages and philology at the University of Pisa and in Berlin, where I graduated in German philology. The need of self comprehension and experimentation brought me to the International School of Art in Terni, where I studied for a Master´s in Photography. Later on, I moved to Florence to complete my studies in traditional photography. Now I live in Berlin which is the perfect place/non place for my neverending research.
