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

I’m a marketing and event coordinator at Tod’s. In my free time I like to run, read and laugh.

What made you leave Italy and chose NYC?

I always dreamed about living in New York. Honestly, I think that being a huge Friends fan influenced my decision.

Please share your best memory in the City.

There are so many that is difficult to choose just one. Probably the first time that I really felt part of the city. It just happened one day while I was walking around and suddenly I realized that I was part of the city and not a tourist anymore.

What made you choose this specific location and outfit?

The reservoir in Central Park is where I run and when I do it I feel free and in peace. It’s a place where I feel comfortable. I actually rarely wear jeans but I thought it was an appropriate outfit for the Park.

Your thought about this project, ITALIANY.US

I thought it was original and fun.

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

my culture is something I deeply treasure and that I will carry with me everywhere life will take me. I am extremely proud of my roots which are constantly displayed in my everyday habits here in New York City, my new home.
