I work as a Creative Director at large at Town and Country. I am a passionate traveler and, when I can, I travel to relax or adventure..
My private life : marriage with Max Vadukul.
My first winter in NY, a memorable snow storm. The city was snowed in: a fascinating, gigantic mistery.
I am passionate about cinema. The photo has an Antonioni feel: a real Italian woman in a crude, urban landscape.
A unique, original way to support and strengthen Italianity.
I am very attached to my roots and traditions, the best way to be an ambassador of my culture.
