Year of starting to teach

I was Born in Fano in 1983. I started dancing as child at the ballet school of Paola Furlani and at 12 I started with the theater attending the school Of The Stable Theater of Fano (PU) directed by Fabrizio Bartolucci. After high school I moved to Bologna to attend the university of Classic Letters and phylology and the dance academy called Arte Danza. In Bologna I met Anna Albertarelli and I fell in love with her material about physical theatre and dance. With her I discovered CI that has become the language that belongs to me. I started to travel and study with a lot of different teachers all over the world. I teach weekly classes in Bologna, and I have partecipated to a lot of festivals. I taught in France, Germany, Ukraine, Italy, Spain, Argentina. Since the first edition I was in the helping team of Italy Contact Camp. Sine two years I'm one of the organizers of Italy Contact Fest ( Italian festival of CI)
