less alive. And the following encounter reveals it.

Between 2015 and 2016 she was assistant to the photographer Maurizio Montagna, who assisted in fashion and architecture photo shoots and during the basic photography course at the Spazio Forma in Milan.
Between 2016 and 2017 she worked as assistant director and camera operator for Ballandi Multimedia for the first two seasons of the “Master of Photography” program produced by Sky Arte.
