I am an Italian costume and prop designer based in Budapest, Hungary. After years as an independent costume designer I entered the movie industry where I built my experience in the Set Decoration Department of movie productions, and where I developed my style from the conceptual ideas to the practical applications.
My aesthetics are very much about the craftmanship, just as paint strokes and visible handicraft
of accessories and clothes are a substancial part of my visual narrative.
Whenever possible, I prefer to be actively involved in the making of mock-up items and prototypes,
which I consider a very important stage of my creative process.
I especially like music videos and fashion photoshoots, where all the energy concentrates within a tight timeframe, and creative decisions have to be made rapidly. Inspirational themes that are dear to me are disfunctional behaviours, magic ritualism, pre-Columbian art and Japanese culture, and digging into the unknown.
