After a BA degree in Industrial Design at ISIA in Rome, she decided to move to Florence to learn the ancient and valuable art of shoe making. She always has been interested in design and making shoes . So she found out that Florence and Accademia Riaci would have been the perfect place for learning about.
She wants to gain knowledge about one of the most Italian famous and worldwide appreciated handcraft art. The craft of shoe making deserves to be handed down from one generation to another, to survive as a prestigious art.

国立デザイン大学ローマ校で工業デザインの文学士号を取得後、昔ながらの貴重な技術である靴制作を学ぶためにフィレンツェ行きを決意。ずっと靴デザインと靴制作に興味があったので、フィレンツェにあるアカデミアリアチへの入学を決めました。
イタリアで最も有名で、世界中から愛されている手作りの靴に関する知識を学びたいと思っています。イタリアの靴制作は後世に引き継がれていくべき技術であり、一流の芸術として残すべき大事な文化です。
