Profession: Cultural and artistic event planner

Why do you do what you do? I organize exhibitions and study contemporary art because I firmly believe in culture and its ability to pose questions and doubts to raise awareness; and of course, because I like it
Could you describe your style and how it developed? I do not think I am mature enough to define mine as a proper “style”, but I consider my attitude rather critique and constructive.
Where do you get inspiration from? I strongly believe in interconnections and cross-knowledge between all the cultural fields: my inspiration comes from everything that catches my attention because of its singularity or oddity.
What is the best part about working within the creative industries? Exploration and discovery
What do you wish you knew about your business before you got started? I wish I knew how hard and at the same time challenging it is, day by day.
Has your style developed/changed over the time being active? If yes, how? Yes, of course. The more I study, the more I get into the field, the more I manage to adjust my actions in order to propose something more structured and hopefully meaningful for others.
Who would you like to work with? I would not mind working with someone who is not from the “beaux arts” field, such a mathematician or a scientist: I love entropy and chaos theories!
What is your idea of success? I think is being able to do what you like and to earn enough money to live from it.
Is there a message that you are trying to portray through your work? I think it could be to never give things for granted: never stop on the surface, always get deeper.
Do you believe it is important to raise artistic awareness in your country? Yes, I do. Italy is a marvelous country with an amazing and often not recognized enough cultural heritage: we are just too used to beauty that we tend not to appreciate it the way it should. So, again, yes, artistic awareness must be raised to preserve what shapes our cultural identity.
In your opinion, how important is it to culturally educate through art? It’s very important: I would not do the job I do if I would have thought something different
