Cassino, 1964. She lives between Zurich and NY. She studied German literature in Italy at “La Sapienza” University; later she got a MA in Film & Video at the “American University” of Washington, D.C.

Her activities range among poetry (recipient of different prizes, publications in anthologies and art books, and Festivals), theater (teaching workshops, directing, acting), video-installations, and literary critiques.

Since years she works with three cultural associations in Italy (TiconZero, Cagliari, experimental electroacustic and collateral languages; ARS Cultural Movement, Rome, visual art; Tracce nel vento, Palermo, literature and publishing).
“Ossidiana” is her first book of poems, published in September 2018 by Volturnia Edizioni, Isernia, Italy.
At the crossing of rivers intertwining
scarves, people migrate and birds
camels, elephants and jute sacks.
Under harsh shadow of torn skies
in baskets women carry
the cries of fathers and knives
in the eyes of children. Replicating
traces of love in a different horizon
on the route of far away delusions.
History is a meandering vein, digging
craters through faces. An offering
of lotus flowers to extinguish the mark
of angular horrors. The harvest
of poured dreams on sand. A wrinkle
in the wind leaves no trace.
