Fond of performing arts, foreign languages and literatures graduate, international cooperation&human rights post-graduate, I spent my studies in France and in Australia, where I could examine topics connected to the studies of the Aboriginal Peoples. Besides, I have been dealing with theatre and non-formal education in ERASMUS+ projects, while working with different theatre companies as a performer and an organizer. I worked as a project manager and social media assistant for an NGO with cooperation projects in South America for two years while working as a part-time English teacher in a secondary school. Since December 2015 I've been international producer for the TYA company Teatro Prova, where I could develop intercultural relations and artistic project planning skills. In particular, thanks to the experience raised in the last few years, she engaged in intercultural mediation, project managing in many artistic fields (theatre for young audiences and young children, disability, technology etc.), developing public relations in order to enhance common aims and to trace out relevant languages in a constant creative perspective. I was cultural manager in the framework of "Tandemforculture" programme with an Egyptian Theatre Company whereas in Italy I dealt with guest companies, programming, co-producing. I've been also coordinator of the first edition of "Lo Sguardo del Gatto" Festival dedicated to Theatre and Inclusion in Bergamo (San Paolo d'Argon).
