I am a museums, exhibition and interior freelance designer with over ten years’ experience in three different countries: Italy, Spain and the UK.

I received a BA Interior Architecture and an MA in Museography and Exhibition Design from Polytechnic University of Milan.

I started my career working on the Renzo Piano Building Workshop’s exhibition at the Triennale di Milano followed by the Spanish Pavilion project for the 2010 Shanghai World Expo in collaboration with EMBT in Barcelona. In London, I worked for Metaphor, Casson Mann and Ralph Appelbaum Associates on several temporary and permanent exhibitions and visitor experiences across the world including the Olympic Museum (Lausanne), the Cite’ du Vin (Bordeaux), the Frost Museum of Science (Miami), the Imperial War Museum’s WWI Galleries and the Natural History Museum’s Hintze Hall (London). Recently, I designed Christie’s shows for the auction house 250th anniversary and I was also D&AD judge for the Spatial and Experiential Design Awards.

I am currently a lead designer for RAA on an international project of a new museum district in Dubai.
