ABOUT ME

Writer and Director

Her debut behind the camera begins with the short film Addio ( 2006), for which she also wrote the script. The short film is selected for a number of international festivals, it’s nominated as Best Narrative Short at the Swansea International Film Festival and Everglades Film Festival and receives a special mention at the Magna Grecia Film Festival. Her debut as a writer and director in the theatre comes with two one man shows called Io Parlo di Sogni (I Talk of Dreams, inspired by Shakespeare’s Mercutio) and Il Canto della Notte (The Song of the Night, inspired by the life and works of F. Nietzsche) both produced by SycamoreTCompany in 2006. In the following years, still for STC she directs a revival of Crack, a play by her husband Franco Bertini and Bruciati by Angelo Longoni and Il Recinto (The Fence) which she also wrote.
In 2011 she directs  La Festa by Michela Andreozzi staged for LET- Liberi Esperimenti Teatrali.

In 2014 she translates and directs Romeo&Juliet Post Scriptum by the young Swedish author Annika Nyman.

She also translates, adapts and directs To The Green Fields Beyond by the English playwright Nick Whitby; the production takes place during the 100th year’s remembrance of WWI, with the patronage of the Council Presidency and the British Council.
In 2016 she directs again Romeo&Juliet Post Scriptum in English at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Actress and Voice Over Artist

She debuts as a voice over artist and singer when she’s seven years old.
Together with her language and acting studies, she continues with her career as a voice over artist (dubber) and ADR director, lending her voice to a number of famous actresses such as Penelope Cruz (All About My Mother, Open Your Eyes , Volavérunt, Woman On Top) and Cameron Diaz (Vanilla Sky, Very Bad Things, A Life Less Ordinary, My Best Friend’s Wedding, What To Expect When You Are Expecting).
In 2003, she receives the Romics Award to her career.
Her passion remains, however, the stage, since her early days treading the boards in 1978 when she performed in The Aspern Papers, based on Henry James’s novella.

She has performed in productions of Shelag Stephenson and David Mamet’s plays, both in Italy and touring Europe.

In 1995 she’s one of the protagonists of Penetrazioni at the
Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
At the same time she has starred in a number of TV and Film roles such as Sessanta9prima, Tutto in quella notte, Tuttapposto and Tom Fontana’s Borgia, in which she performs in English.
