marks for her guitar diploma at the Conservatory
of Music in Parma under the guidance of E.
Tagliavini. At the same time she graduated
in Art at
the Accademia delle Belle Arti di Brera in
Milan with a thesis on the musical writings
of Kandinskij. She has furthered her musical
studies with various advanced courses with
musicians such as O. Ghiglia, M.Gangi, A.
Bailes and in particular R. Chiesa. Her artistic

the passionate teacher V. Casagrande, the
lutist H. Smith and the choir director M.

sung for four years recording the Missa pro
