The beginning was very different to what I had imagined; fate had put in my hands some floppy threads! Just some thread to build up my future? Distrust turned to faith and I found myself on my way. “
“I used thread just like a sculptor or a painter.” Anni Albers (Berlin 1899 – New Haven 1994)
I was born in Milan, and for more than 25 years I have been living and working in Pisa. In 1987 I fell in love with fabrics and weaving. Since then I’m studying woven textile and I work on weaving looms.
I periodically hold textile technical drawing courses, practice of weaving and textile trade sectors in public and private schools, from nursery school to university.
I teach textile trade sectors at the Modartech Instituteof Pontedera.
I have taught weaving and fabric design in the course of Culture and Fashion Design, Inter-Faculty of Arts and Architecture in Florence.
I have collaborated together with the course of Industrial Design of the Faculty of Architecture of Florence and the Academy of Arts in Florence, within the project of Innovation and Nautica Mobile Scenarios, coordinated by Artex– Centre for Artistic Traditional Handicrafts of Tuscany.
I have taught at the Cerratelli Foundationof San Giuliano Terme, Pisa.
From 2007, I’m participating in “The Artisan at School” project, sponsored by the city of Pisa and Casartigiani.
