A sort of ideal solution between passion for travel and social and cultural chronicle, of which she has always written with appreciated services for national weekly and monthly magazines. Already editor at Vanity Fair in 2003, for which she worked for some years, she also focused her attention on the phenomena linked to the culture of food, later publishing stories in France and publishing in Italy, in 2011, the successful volume of tales about Spiriti Bollenti.

Following the experience of biographical writing with the stylist Mila Schon, for whom in 2006 she gave to the prints "Nei miei panni", on commission she started to write biographies of people, places, companies and is currently working on a new biographical project.

One of his mottos is a phrase that nobody knows to whom to attribute - but does this really matter? - which sounds like this :"Every person you meet is fighting a battle that you know nothing about. Be kind, always"
