Currently working on this crappy book with Julia van IJken. It probably won’t look like this though as it will be too pricey to use cloth for the binding. Expect some shitty stories. 

Posters about energy (as in the one that connects us all)

Ahhhhhh the Sound Seminar! I don’t even have words to describe it, it’s way too magical to be ruined by language. I’ll just tell you it’s hosted by the legendary Jon Wozencroft, and I had the pleasure to kinda design the graphics for one event.

My nonna has to be here because I miss her so much and she was my n.1 fan. 





About me:
I REALLY LIKE DOPHINS, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY JUMP. 
I ALSO REALLY LIKE POO, CRAPPY DRAWINGS,  PANTHERS, PIPPI LONGSTOCKING WHO IS MY HEROINE, KILL BILL, SWEET OLD LADIES, ADVERBS OF PLACE, THE SEA (WHO DOESN’T, RIGHT?) AND MANY OTHER THINGS.
 


In 2020 I graduated from an MA at the Royal College of Art in Visual Communication (Pathway: Graphic Design). I complained a lot about my last year there though in this little book that I “exhibited” on the online degree show.
They tried to shut me down but if it’s in a book it’s history, and if it’s in Times New Roman it’s very much real.

Together with it, I also founded (and now abandoned to its misery) SUPER REFLECTIVE with Andrea Popyordanova, an online archive of past & present RCA protests.

& Below our MANIFESTO:
And some visuals I did for the online site:

<><><><><><><>
A poster I did for the set of a funny scene in an upcoming TV series (shhh it’s kind of secret)
/ The memorial of a dead Welsh old man / The crew and actors loved it so much that apparently it became iconic and they all took pictures with it haha

For the same TV production, I did some other things, like these posters BELOW that we printed on colorful paper. 
More pics of these coming soon.

I Am One: Journey of A Liberated Soul is a video I’ve made in 2019 that you can watch on YouTube HERE only if you are over 18, because there is the amazing Natasha Sturgis dancing in an orange bodysuit and YouTube thinks she’s naked. I’ve tried to argue with the algorithm but it just wouldn’t listen.


Posters for the second edition (the first was cancelled due to Covid) for an exhibition of artists concerned with a ‘new’ spiritual.
Previous ones, printed with Risograph:

A poster made during the first lockdown in April 2020, with a quote of the great Carlo Rovelli that seemed very appropriate at the time.

A sweet creature.


A cheesy skin poem I wrote a couple of years ago and pasted on my friend’s neck. She has always been my neck model cause as you can see her neck is very special I think.


Again some avverbi di luogo (adverbs of place): qui, qua, dentro fuori, sopra, sotto, lí, là, lontanto, vicino, dovunque, laggiù. 
// I mean these are the nicest words ever and  also isn’t it much nicer when we’re there rather than here, and we let outside what’s inside but also bring the outside inside and we’re far but not further and basically when everything is everywhere?
We are what we see, we see what we are.

FYI: I CAN ALSO DO MORE SERIOUS WORK (ABOVE).
Until recently, I used to work part time for CHK DESIGN, a small but mighty graphic design studio in Hackney (London). Will always be grateful for all the things I learned there 💕 Here a selection of some of the “wildest” designs I proposed...


And this is a book about experimenting & thinking aesthetics (WIP).

This ladybird is really upset with a limo polluting her hill. Understandable to be honest. 

A recorded conversation between me and the online Tate Archive website. Done while at RCA in collab with Tate and probably quite pointless.

Digital crap creeping everywhere these days.

It’s a gradient, and like glitter. A vibration. Dzzzz. Shhhh. It moves upwards up up up, never rests never quivers, even if it’s slippery. I blink, is there, I blink, is gone, but the ceiling echos of it. Ssss. You need to focus.


I did my BA in Graphic Communication Design (Pathway: Illustration) at Central Saint Martins, UAL.
Here FROM AFRICA TO COMO LAKE, my favourite project from back then:




My name in Italian means daisy and is not a pizza nor a bloody fucking drink.

A very old project from my 2nd year of BA. The story of a girl who suffers from Body Dysmorphic Disorder.
 

A spread from a bookwhere I collaged social media posts of 8,9,10 yrs olds + things they said when interviewd about their social media usage. Very creepy stuff.


Digital creeps.


I really like dolphins, especially when they jump.

$$$

An abstract print part of my One page, One Minute book which is too big to even try to photograph so I never had the energy. Is also long to explain that project and right now I don’t have the energies.

In Italy we have this thing called ’bidet’ that is very useful and that I’m always trying to promote. Above: in the bathroom of my mum’s friend, where you can see some classic 80s Italian brown tiles, very typical in bathrooms of those years, and one of the most common delicate bidet soaps. If you also feel passionate about bides and think they should be found in other countries, contact me and let’s discuss a bidet progaganda project together.

In the meantime, some fun facts about bidets from Wikipedia:

Etymology
Bidet is a French word for "pony", and in Old French, bider meant "to trot". This etymology comes from the notion that one "rides" or straddles a bidet much like a pony is ridden. The word "bidet" was used in 15th century France to refer to the pet ponies that French royalty kept.[24]


Eighteenth-century bidet in use.
