About me

Art exhibitions and cultural events blogger, radio editor-in-chief, deeply in love with everything is art. I worked as Assistant Curator and I understood that being a curator is what I want “when I grow up”. I started my journey through the university as Philosophy student, but when I spent some time in a museum I realised that Art was my element. Graduated with a dissertation in History of Contemporary Art, about Alighiero Boetti and his possible bond with contemporary British artists, I started and graduated cum laude in Business Communication, Cultural Events and Exhibitions Management MA in Milan, with a final dissertation about how Corporate Collections and Art-Based Projects can improve the brand image of a company.
