Milan, April 7th 2020
After the high school I had no doubt about which way to go: the Academy of Fine Arts was the only possible way! Initially I was enrolled in Decoration, but when, after a few weeks, the new experimental course of Restoration of Contemporary Art started, I changed department. I was very interested in the studies on old and new materials, the scientific techniques applied to restoration, the historical and artistic investigations of the works and the “practical” intervention procedures. Parallel to my studies I have always painted and my mentor was Vincenzo Ferrari, my teacher and teacher.
After the Academy I looked for a studio in Milan, I had very clear ideas about what I wanted to do and I certainly couldn’t paint in the bedroom that I shared with my sister at the time!
