What do you do in your life (work and fun)?

I’m a Film Producer, founder of We Do It Together, a nonprofit film production company that produces film by women, about women but for everyone. I like to eat Italian food, which I’m extremely good at, dance and sing, which I’m a bit less good at…..

What made you leave Italy and chose LA?

My passion for films. I came to Los Angeles to study films at the Loyola Marymount University, where I graduated.

Please share your best memory in the City.

When for the first time I saw the Ocean, its immensity, power, and stillness were impressive, and in net contrast with the chaos of the city.

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

I love trees. I often go there to meditate. I feel their energy, and they give me peace.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US

A great idea. A great way to discover people’s life, passions and dreams. A way to connect with each other’s dreams, and learn more about Italian culture.

How would you describe being an ambassador of the Italian style/culture abroad?

I feel very proud to be an Italian and very lucky to be an ambassador. What else can I ask for?
