The body is our general means of having a world.

Maurice Merleau-Ponty


I am a teacher and a performer, movement intrigues me and amazes me in all its forms, it is my favourite dimension to research, grow and relate to the world.


I trained as a contemporary dancer in Milan, Florence, Barcelona, Boston and New York, integrating academic study with contact improvisation, yoga, aerial dance and tap. Since the age of 20, I have taught in numerous dance and theater schools and training centers. I have danced for several international companies and since 2005 co-directed Schuko, a company based in Milan, engaged in research that integrates dance, design and visual arts. I graduated in Philosophy in 2001, and have been involved in education in school and social work.


My interest in movement then grew along with my interest in the humanities, the body-mind system and learning processes, leading me to learn about the Feldenkrais® Method, a technique that has profoundly conditioned the quality of my movement and my approach as a teacher. Feldenkrais fueled my curiosity in the human being from both a philosophical and a bodily perspective. A 2008 graduate of the Feldenkrais Training Institute in Milan, I have been an Assistant Trainer for Feldenkrais teacher training courses since 2022. I am the author of the manual Lezioni di Metodo Feldenkrais, per un’ecologia del movimento, published by Xenia in 2011 and a member of AIIMF Associazione Italiana Insegnanti di Metodo Feldenkrais, thus active on several fronts on the dissemination of the Method.


The relationship between learning, physical contact and touch is what brought me from dance, through the Feldenkrais Method, to explore Infant Massage and become a teacher certified by A.I.M.I (Italian Infant Massage Association).


Moving is also traveling, an activity I always enjoy doing! I have visited many countries, made connections with different cultures and lived in various cities. My latest landing place is Trieste, where I have lived since 2012 with my family. I like being able to use the languages I know, English, Spanish, French and Portuguese, and I prefer multicultural environments. Nature, in which I try to immerse myself as often as possible, is a source of continuous inspiration for my educational and artistic research.


Esseremovimento is my training proposal, divided into various disciplines and focused on a systemic vision of the human being. It includes courses in feldenkrais, dance and infantile massage, as well as periodic seminars of actors training, dance in natural enviroment, workshop for schools, training for dance professionals, sport and rehabilitation. I really love collaborating with other professionals, combining my expertise with that of physiotherapists, psychologists, trainers, coaches, doctors and artists.
