Biography

Graduated in English and French Language and Literature from the University of Venice (Italy) in 1995. She worked and lived in London for seven years and moved back to Italy in 2002 to complete an MA in literary translation from English. She self-published two short fictions (December, 2010), a collection of haikus, "Che haiku vuoi?"

From 2011 onwards she took part in the "Creative Insomnia Nights" venture, a series of multi-disciplinary and multi-sensorial events on colours organised by the atelier Meta-morphic, a cultural association based in Madrid (Spain). So far four contributions: a red haiku and some recollections/suggestions evoked by the analogies enacted by the colour red; a video-tale, set in the Seventies exploring orangeness and its dark side; a yellow playlist encompassing fifty years of music from the Sixties to the New Millennium that was broadcast on ONDA LATINA - a Madrid independent radio - and three articles on Amaryllis, Virgil's sheperdhess, Women's Day, and her translation of a Josif Brodskij's poem ("I threw my arms about those shoulders"), an essay on the green ray, the green mirage, inspired by Jules Verne's novel, Le Rayon Vert. She was part of the SPOKEN project, a multimedia online show organised by the American artist, writer and photographer Stephen Black, who's currently living in Singapore.
