About Me

I act to show people that they are not alone in how they feel.

I am an Italian actress and producer bouncing between New York and Italy. Most recently I performed at the A.R.T/New York theaters with my theater company Et Alia Theater and I was part of an ensemble collaborative piece between La MaMa and Teatro Dell'Albe. My recent on-camera work includes a role on FBI (CBS) Ep.17 S.5 and one on CherryBomb (Amazon Prime). I also won Best Supporting Actress at the Brazilian International Film Festival for my role in 'Til Morning, a short film I co-produced. Additionally, I have also worked on the development of A Thousand Ways (The Public) and The Fever (La Mama) with 600 HIGHWAYMEN. My favorite roles have included Lady Anne in Richard III directed by Gisela Cardenas as well as an Italian version of Joan of Arc in Eat and You Belong to Us written by MJ Kaufmann and directed by Melissa Crespo. 

 

Most of my theater and producing work involves the company I co-founded in 2019: Et Alia Theater. We provide performance programming and artistic opportunities that welcome, support, and showcase international women artists in New York. Since 2019 we have performed at HERE Arts Center, Theaterlab, Rattlestick and New Ohio Theater and have won several grants. We had the pleasure to represent the U.S.A. in the international ‘Let There Be Theater’ project (Ars Nova Org.) by producing White Rabbit, Red Rabbit by Nassim Soleimanpour, in which I was the solo performer in 2021. Also, we were guest speakers at TEDxYouth for which we created a new project called Can We Talk? Most recently we started teaching Physical Expression and Multicultural Communication workshops at Cooper Union University. 

I graduated with Honors from New York University, Tisch School of the Arts with a Major in Drama and a Minor in Dance. Here I trained in Meisner with Vicki Hart, Grotowsky with Jonathan Makwaia, Commedia Dell’Arte with Jim Calder and The Method with Geoffrey Horne. I have also done a summer Shakespeare intensive at Guildhall School of Drama and Music. Apart from multiple workshops with casting directors both in the USA and in Italy, I also extended my studies at The Barrow Group.​

Part of my artistic mission is to build cultural bridges by making art travel around the world. For this reason I have been co-producing the Italy on Screen Today New York Film Festival with Loredana Commonara and working alongside Valeria Orani in the Italian American Playwrights Project. I can only say that there is more to come.

I have been training in dancing and singing since I was a very young and I am also extremely sporty and athletic. I have been modeling since I was fourteen and I love hosting big dinners with my friends. Fun fact: I lived in Italy till I was 10, in India till I was 17 and have been in New York ever since!
