Live and work between Milan and the province of Caserta focusing on socio-political issues capable of corroborating her experimental theses on the “authoritarian personality” concept by Adorno.

She refer to Baroque aesthetics, the politics of waste, the sacred and the tragic typical of certain cultural expressions of southern Italy. “Martyrion” is her latest project in progress with Sara Terracciano, who talks about the environmental havoc in Campania.
