myself


I’m a visual artist and a cultural worker busy with a continuous process of research.

I’m based below the Alps in north-west Italy, places that become my projects’ subjects and inspiration.  Through a cross-media approach, I focus on rural environments and the social structures that traverse them, the meeting between human and non-human forms of life, folcklor, post-industrialism, and the act of field-researching (field-learning) as a valuable form of cultural production in itself.

I hold an MA in critical studies and art practice at the Dutch Art Institute (2019, ArtEZ, Arnhem, NL) and a BFA at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in the audio-visual department (2014, Amsterdam, NL).

At the moment, I’m bringing on a few collaborative projects.

Isterika Istorika, an open and horizontal bookclub on transfeminist narratives (Turin), and Resta Qui Airlines that is a long term, socially engaging, multidisciplinary project on ways of traversing and perceiving the environment.

I worked as didactic tutor for residency programs (Cittadellarte Fondazione Pistoletto - ArtEZ AIR residency, Biella, IT), as assistant of production and workshop facilitator (Cittadellarte UNIDEE program, Biella, IT; Hotel Maria Kapel, Hoorn, NL; viadellafucina16, Turin, IT), and as research assistant for projects on industrial design history.

Art work is work and it’s collaborative.

I have been part of community projects such as the independent organization Better Places a.p.s. and the cultural space for music and performance HYDRO (Biella).

My MA thesis is a research on the relationship between land property and semi-nomadic shepherds’ work of maintenance on natural resources. It resonates in materialist and eco-feminist theories, leading to a series of interviews with shephers I staged in the performance Maintenance of What (Dutch Art Institute, Berlin, 2019).
