I was born in Sicily, and in 1994 at the age of 18, I moved to Milan to attend La NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti - Academy of fine Arts), where I obtained my degree as Fashion and Textile Designer, in 1998 with maximum results. Living in Milan I was completely absorbed by the trendy mood of the Italian fashion’s capital, fully experiencing its creative aspects and I was also able to learn a disciplined and international way of working.
In Milan I also started working as stylist and costume designer for commercial spots, film productions, musical video clips and fashion photography.
I moved to Rome in 2004 and still now I am falling in love with it. There is no one day in which I do not enjoy this my new city, I think the most beautiful in the world.
Here my fashion taste has been enriched with love for the artistic past, endless and unique, as only Rome has, without forgetting the characteristic gaiety of roman people in everyday life.
Anyway, wherever I may be in the world, people is always the greatest source of my creative inspiration. I observe with curious and positive eyes people living their lives, working, loving, playing, laughing, crying, getting excited, and they are similar and different in the same breath.
Humanity is the greatest form of art of the life itself. My effort is to use just this in my job.
I live my job as if it was a part of my body, I couldn’t live without it, and I love to meet people who made of their job a passion. My great heroes are Charlie Chaplin, Sergio Leone, Alfred Hitchcock, Tim Burton, Peter Greenway, Steven Spielberg, Pedro Almodovar and Ferzan Ozpetek.
What I whish for my life is to work with directors and photographers who can convey by their films and photos the same emotions and feelings that these great directors gave me.
