I was born in Como, Italy in 1993
I live and work in The Hague, The Netherlands

I am an interdisciplinary artist with a strong interest in collaborative and participatory projects. My work takes shape in a visual manner, often rising from creative practices like dance, theater, music, and ritualism. Every piece therefore contains traces of performativity.

Inspired by my Mediterranean origins, I strive for the survival of a discussion on the daily life encounters of the human being, which help him shaping his identity within a migratory life: the effort put into creating a community, into developing a set of values and into feeding spirituality as articulation of the experience of life, preparing to face and overcome the geographical and cultural traumas of the history.
Making use of formats like happenings and scripted performances, I try “social experiments” in order to bring the attention to the humane talent of “make do”, reinventing and fend for oneself as well as of training the daily resilience.
