She completed her master’s degree in vocal studies with Monica Bacelli and Gregory Bonfatti at the Conservatory of Bologna in 2016. She has received the Zucchelli Scholarship 2014 in voice and the State Award for Conservatory students “Premio delle Arti - 2013” with her trio LatinoBalcanica Ensemble, with whom she went on the air in 2012 at RAI Radio Tre (the culture radio channel of the Italian national broadcasting company). She obtained also a Master’s degree in Communication Studies in 2007 at the University of Bologna.

She has extensive experience in both ancient and contemporary music including the roles of Orfeo by Gluck (with Marcello Bufalini and Abruzzo Symphony Orchestra), Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia by Rossini, Jaffett’s wife in Noye’s Fludde by Britten (with Jonathan Webb and Camerata Strumentale Prato), Bradamante in Orlando furioso by Vivaldi (with Elena Sartori at Teatro del Giglio, Lucca); solo voice in Laborintus II by Luciano Berio (with Fabrice Pierre and the Ensemble of the Conservatories of Bologna and Lyon at Teatro Comunale Bologna), as well as Sequenza III, Folk Songs, Altra Voce (live electronics by Tempo Reale) by Berio, Aria and Europera 3 by John Cage, La fabbrica illuminata by Luigi Nono (at the Resistance and Deportation History Centre in Lyon), as the role of Clorinda and Narrator in Monteverdi’s Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda (at the National Art Gallery of Bologna). She began her choral activity at a young age in the Coro da Camera di Bologna directed by Pier Paolo Scattolin. She collaborates with several choirs: since 2017 with the choir of the Teatro Regio di Parma (under the direction of Roberto Abbado, ROF 2017); since 2014 with the choir of the Radiotelevisione Svizzera Italiana (directed by Diego Fasolis, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Antonello Manacorda in several concerts also with Martha Argerich and Cecilia Bartoli at LAC, Lugano). In 2013, she entered the ECO - European Contemporary Orchestra, whom she sings contemporary music in important festivals and theatres: Festival Enescu - Bucarest, Théatre National de la Criée - Marseille, Flagey - Bruxelles and Biennale - Venice 2015, recorded also by RAI Radio Tre. In 2012, she sang as chorist Sancta Susanna by Hindemith under the direction of Riccardo Muti (Teatro Alighieri, Ravenna) and The Planets by Holst directed by Dennis Russel Davies.

In 2015 she founded Zero Vocal Ensemble, who dedicates in particular to renaissance, baroque and contemporary a cappella music and performs various premières in important festivals and places around Italy (Poetry Vicenza 2016, Vicenza; Ateneo Veneto, Biblioteca Marciana and Ex Novo Festival, Venice; Accademia Filarmonica and Musica Insieme Contemporanea, Bologna, Teatro Ariosto and Collezione Maramotti, Reggio Emilia; Pavia Barocca 2017, Pavia).

She took part in several recordings. Among the others:

- “La liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola di Alcina” by Francesca Caccini, edited by Glossa (2016), in which she sings the role of a lady in waiting
- “Lateinisches Magnificat” by Georg Philip Telemann (Christophorus, 2017) in which she sings the part of soprano II solo. Both are directed by Elena Sartori.
She transcripted in modern notation the book of madrigals “MADREGALI A TRE VOCI de diversi eccellentissimi autori Nuovamente Con Ogni Diligentia Ristampati e Corretti In Venetia Appresso di Antonio Gardano (1561)” published by AERCO (Bologna, 2005).
