1. How did you get into modeling?
I always been an aesthetic and I had a passion for fashion and modeling, but I’d say It‘ s been a very natural evolution. Training as professional ballet and contemporary dancer gave my body long lines and a very strong expressivity; things that are very appreciated among photographers. I’m very happy to have the opportunity to bring everything I learnt, in these years, on the camera.
2. What are you doing if you are not modeling?
I’m a professional ballet, contemporary, phisical theatre dancer and actor. I lately worked for some BBC and Netflix series, Mc Café and National Lottery commercial and some small roles in hollywood and Bollywood movies, both as dancer and actor. I take daily ballet and contemporary classes over than my core home workout. This Lockdown gave me the opportunity to work even more on my body with daily practices of ballet, yoga arms and core exercises; everything between my room, my conservatory and my garden and I’ve been uploading a daily memory of this very personal bootcamp on my Instagram account!At one point I also started to do it broadcasting on Likee.
3. The most spontaneous/difficult/strange thing you’ve ever done?
I’m a very spontaneous person, I’m like an open book, with many pages and stories. I think the most difficult thing I chose in my life, it’s also the best thing I did, and it was when I chose to become a professional dancer. It’s something, very hard, that you have to feel deeply and has to turn in to your top priority in life. It needs constant commitment and sacrifices in order to enjoy that moment, on stage or on camera, where your body, moving, makes Art, create stories and gives emotions.
4. Whats your life moto?
Be Always the best version of yourself, give yourself an aim and do the best you can with the tools you have.
If you do something, do it deeply, with passion, because love and dedication are the things that at the end make the difference!
5. Describe your personal style – Favorite Brands/Fragrance?!
I love linen clothes and ‚Capri style‘ trousers. There are many beautiful high couture boutique in my hometown. But as I said a book has many pages and stories, I like to be many characters, I like to change totally style sometimes. The environment of course can change a lot your way to dress, but I like vintage, smart, casual maybe sometimes classic with a particular accessorie. I like Italian brands such as Armani, Prada, Versace, Fendi, Gucci; I come from a country with a deep High fashion culture in it and I love that uniqueness.
As fragrances I love Gucci Guilty, Acqua di Gio, Hermes and Sauvage from Dior.
6. What genre of music best describes you?
I like many kind of music, It really depends on my mood, the time of the day or on what I’m doing in that moment.
I like deep techno, rock or pop sometimes, you see the music is the perfect frame for a moment and I think that every frame suits a different painting, so every moment has its kind of music with it. I live with the beat and the beat lives in me!
7. Where are your roots – The best thing about/to do in your hometown?
I’m italian and I come from Sorrento, a small city in the Amalfi Coast, a beautiful place part of the UNESCO Heritage. We have beautiful beaches, cliffs and natural paths; there you can find stunning and unique landscapes, you can go hiking or discovering Pompeii ruins after a tour on the Vesuvius or a boat trip around the coast. There’s so much beauty there that the time feels never enough.
8. Name one celebrity youd like to get naughty with!
Well I’m a very open minded person, but I never thought about that. I don’t use to dream i that way, I’m more likely to dream of a person I’ve met… But I will think about it and I will tell you next time.
9. Do you have any special Talents?
I think everyone has a special talent, we just have to discover which is ours. Once you found it it has to be supplied by sacrifices and commitment.
I think that studying professionally many kind of dance since I’m a child, gave my body a very strong flexibility, versatility and expressivity. This allow me today to adapt easily to new environments and to daily challenge myself. I also have a very good photographic memory since I’m a child, I remember places where I’ve been just when I was few years old.
10. What is the most interesting thing online at the moment?
I think it’s quite clear, today people don’t want to see the perfect life of the perfect person, we have had to enough of that. What people like it’s to see normal people, nano and micro influencers, challenging themselves creating entertaining contents. Look the new platforms like Instagram, Tik Tok or Likee they bring the cool normal to the large audience.
I also started a partnership with Likee since a couple of months, a new path started thanks to the current situation.
