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

Outside of work I’m interested in yoga, hiking and various other outdoor activities. As a native of Roma I’m a big supporter of my AS Roma. Soccer is serious business in my house.

What made you leave Italy and chose LA?

I work in a highly creative environment. Los Angeles is a great place to work in many different mediums, aside from films, such as music videos, docs, commercials, etc.

Please share your best memory in the City.

I’m lucky to have shared many good memories with friends both Italian and American in LA. I would say that some of my favorite memories are times spent with friends in Topanga Canyon. I love the outdoors and the canyons are beautiful.

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

LA can be something different for everyone. For me, I love the views LA has to offer. There are so many hidden places that are fun to explore. The outfit was chosen because it’s the best outfit that represents me. Jeans and a t-shirt! This is what I want to wear every day of my life!

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US

I think it’s a fantastic project, it brings people together that would have probably never crossed paths in Italy.

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

I love my country with all the good and bad things about it. More than anything I love my city, no matter what Rome is to me the most beautiful city….
