Data and contact details

Art historian and curator. Lives and works in Rome.


Her education background started in Pisa, where she graduated in European artistic languages and cultures in 2012, with a dissertation on Diego Rivera and the case of Rockefeller Center. Then she obtained a master’s degree in Contemporary Art History, presenting in 2016 a research about the Protofuturism of Umberto Boccioni and the visual sources of his paintings exhibited at Bernheim Gallery in 1912.

She concluded her study path with a Double Master’s Degree in Management of Cultural Assets and Activities at Ca' Foscari University of Venice and the École Supérieure du Commerce (ESCP) in Paris, presenting a study about the project of the frieze "Triumphs and Laments" by William Kentridge and the role of contemporary art, recovering urban areas.

During the university years, she held an internship at the Museum of Graphic Design in Pisa related to learning activities at museums, she assistes the curators in projecting and setting up temporary exhibitions at the same museum. She actively participates in research and archival projects promoted by the Department of Civility and Forms of Knowledge of the University of Pisa, including "FUTURAHMA - Between Futurism and the Return to the Classic (1910-1922). Pictorial techniques, criticism of variations and conservative problems".

In 2015 she collaborated with the Associazione Carico Massimo Arte Contemporanea of Livorno for the realization of the video interviews used by the artist Maria Théreza Alvès in the installation "Why here?", dedicated to the theme of immigration and the reception of refugees, presented on the occasion of the exhibition "Livorno in contemporanea".

In 2017 she moved to Rome and began her curatorial activity, first as Art Manager at the Ducci Foundation where she projected, set up and promoted the exhibitions curated by Prof.Claudio Strinati, then as Curator at Atelier Montez.

Today, she's a freelance curator and works with Atelier Montez.
