I was born in Torino into a very creative family. My first love is the sea, sailing around the world for several years before I "settled" down to raise my daughter, Alice, who is now grown up and turned to be an actress. I consider myself multicultural, speaking perfect English and French, which has been invaluable in my career working as an entertainment promoter and organizing themed weeks throughout Italy. I now live in Volterra with my husband Andrea, and I am in charge of Villa di Ulignano although it belongs to my brother-in-law, Massimo Cristaldi. It was my dream to bring back to the villa the spirit of creativity that was at its heart years ago, and I love that it has made it possible for me to share my enthusiasm for life with people from all over the world.
Looking forward to meeting you soon at Villa di Ulignano!
