  • Since 2007, I work with prints, videos and fabrics design. I exhibited my work in galleries in Italy, UK and US. I worked on personal and commissioned projects. My work is very versatile and gained more complexity and details with the time. In these last years, I worked in costume design for movies, with costume designer Milena Canonero in 3 movies, including The Grand Budapest Hotel by Wes Anderson and recently with costume designer Gabriella Pescucci in a new project that will come out in 2017.
