Born and raised in Sardinia, I hold a Master's Degree in Modern & Contemporary Art History from University of Pisa, Italy, where I graduated in 2007 in Twentieth Century and Post-War Italian Art with Prof. Fabrizio D'Amico, one of the most important scholars in the field of Italian painting and sculpture of the interwar years.
The interest in Modern & Contemporary Art has continued to play an essential role in my work journey.
My career started initially in Northern Italy as a Curatorial Assistant at Querini Stampalia Foundation in Venice and Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea in Turin, and secondly as a Gallery Assistant in Venice and Padua.
2009 marked a significant step forward: I moved to Rome to assist the pioneer of Conceptual American Art, Joseph Kosuth, in management and coordination of an international Studio's activity, including the production of international exhibitions and public commissions, such as:
- Joseph Kosuth, '(Waiting for - ) Texts for Nothing' Samuel Beckett, in play, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA) Melbourne, Australia, December 2010 – February 2011
- Joseph Kosuth, 'Texts for Nothing' Samuel Beckett, in play, Galleria Lia Rumma, Milan, Italy, November 2010 – January 2011
- Joseph Kosuth, ni apparence ni illusion, Musée du Louvre, Paris, France, October 2009 - June 2010
- Joseph Kosuth, An Interpretation of This Title, Nietzsche, Darwin and the Paradox of Content, Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh, UK, July 2009
From 2014 to 2019, I joined Innauction GmbH, a small Auction House based in Innsbruck, Austria.
As I always say, working in an artist's Studio is like being part of an orchestra. But, similarly, the activity of an Auction House involves the analogous ability to be part of a cross-functional reality.
Being part of a close-knit team as a Specialist has allowed me to contribute to coordinating, developing and delivering ten international Sales (Modern & Contemporary Art - Photography - Design - Ancient Prints), including the research on properties for cataloguing.
In 2017, I moved my way up to the Private Sales Department: more specifically, for the following two years, I managed, catalogued and sold an extensive collection of works on paper from 1940s and 1950s by Modern British artist Graham Sutherland (wartime drawings, study portraits, standing forms, bestiaries) from a single private European ownership, establishing a network of clients in Europe, in the UK and in the USA including private collectors, dealerships and institutions.
