“…all can make my heart beat “.
-ø 10 questions in a box –øThePasseNger interview
ø1 Where were you born? Where did you grow up?
I was born in Italy and I grew up in Sora, a nice little town 100 km far from Rome, with my parents, a brother and a sister – both younger than me -, my fabulous grandparents on my mother’s side, a dog and a cat.
ø2 Who (or what) do you love?
I love all that can be a form of art: painting, photography, architecture, gardens, nature… yes, nature, cause I think nature is the best form of art ever.
ø3 When did you first discover your creative talents?
Do I have a creative talent??? =) Ok, see answer no. 9.
ø4 Who and/or what are some of your influences?
My inspiration originates from all can make my heart beat: people, buildings, mountains, woods, rivers, seas, lakes, lawns, flowers, clouds, sky…
ø5 How would you describe your art to someone who could not see it?
I really don’t know… I’m not yet conscious of my art… Maybe stream of consciousness?
ø6. How do you prepare yourself for a day of working? Rituals?
I have no rituals. But I have to feel something inside me… an inspiration…
ø7 Which is your favorite piece you have created? and Why?
One day I feel the need to go by the lake which is 5 minutes from my house – I really love water in general, but this lake has a special place in my heart – and I took a lot of pictures, some of whom are my favourite pieces, cause I identify myself, my essence, in them.
ø8 If you could spend the day with anyone, living or deceased, whom would you choose and what would hope to gain from the experience?
I would spend a day more with my grandpa, to hug him and ask what is there in the afterlife, and if he’s fine…
ø9 What is your secret ambition?
Since I was a girl I realized I expressed myself in “artistic” ways: I liked to transform my clothes with patches and embroideries, to garnish cakes even before cake design became so popular in Italy, and all that could be within DIY. And I loved photography and taking pictures – even if I had only an automatic little camera…
I even wrote some fairy tales for children…
So, my secret ambition is to became a real artist, a photographer or a writer…
