What do you do in your life (work and fun)?

I am a fashion Stylist, Vintage Buyer and collector and a free spirit. I love playing the ukulele, Playing paddle tennis on the boardwalk in Venice and many other things…

What made you leave Italy and chose NYC/LA?

I wanted to get further and further away from the old to discover the new, I wanted to challenge myself to learn a new culture.

Please share your best memory in the City

Recording a song in a basement in Brooklyn…

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

Venice is where I just moved, my heart has always been here. This dress is sexy and Vintage.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US

Immigration is a very interesting subject for me, not only because I am an immigrant myself but because I am obsessed with the idea of this world being so small. I also share a lot of interest in policies of integration, I feel like America is pretty good on that after you are able to get a green card, which is an annoying process on its own.

How would you describe being an ambassador of the italian style/culture abroad?

Americans are very intrigued with Italians, we represent the form and they represent the practical aspect of things , it’s a great mingling experience so far.
