I was born in Rome, and am based in London.
My music video Homeless in L.A.: a meditation (2021) has been officially selected for inclusion in “A quiet scene: L.A.”, with music from Brian and Roger Eno.
I directed two award-winning short films:
Unexpected (2019). Best Experimental Short Award, Creation International Film Festival, Cinema World Fest Awards. Semi-Finalist, Aladerri International Film Festival.
I, Rose (2018). Best Film Award, Screentest Festival. Semi-Finalist, Venice Shorts.
My new short film, Hear my Voice, a story I wrote myself, set in East London, is starting its festival run. The film mixes autobiography and fiction, with a dreamlike/ fantastic element.
I have directed opera and theatre in the UK, and in Europe.
Directing work includes Il Segreto di Susanna at Teatro Verdi, Trieste, Italy; Cautionary Tales by Errollyn Wallen at Latitude Festival, UK; Aci, Galatea e Polifemo for the Göttingen International Handel Festival, Germany, and the London Handel Festival; the UK première of the play Purgatorio by Ariel Dorfman at the Arcola Theatre in London; Der Freischütz at Opéra de Metz and Opéra de Rennes, France; L’occasione fa il ladro by Rossini at Wexford Festival, Ireland, and the Royal Academy of Music in London; My Feet May Take A Little While (based on the songbook by Errollyn Wallen), and a staging of Dichterliebe, both at the Arcola Theatre; the UK première of Ciboulette by Reynaldo Hahn at UCOpera in London; Così fan tutte for Mid-Wales Opera. I have also translated and directed the play The Fan, by Goldoni at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow.
I am volunteer Fundraising Manager for Fringe! Film Fest, a yearly LGBTQ film festival that takes place in East London.
