After graduating in Western Languages and Literature, I majored in Art Management through an international master's degree.
Passionate about art and mainly focused on graffiti and street art, I have been working since 2011 as an assistant and studio manager for the artist Manuel di Rita, aka Peeta, being interested in the management of public mural interventions and in the organization and curatorship of his exhibitions, as well as of communication and logistics for his studio.
At the same time, I have collaborated in various positions in national and international projects, mainly related to urban art and the redevelopment of public spaces. Finally, I was selected by schools, universities and training centers as a teacher and guest-speaker on the occasion of courses dedicated to management in the artistic field.
