Born and raised in Bologna, I was always an avid cultural consumer and a curious wanderer, passionate about literature, music and travel.
After my degree in Cultural Sciences (curriculum in Philosophy) I was eager to acquire the tools and experience to make a career in the world of culture. In 2015 I enrolled in GIOCA, a two-year graduate programme in management of arts and culture.
In the last two years I’ve made my curricular internship for a renowned music festival, graduated and made my first professional experience for a prestigious live music organization.
