River Path was born in a precise place: the river that runs down the valley next to my home.
Back from my excursions, I used to write down what I had perceived in a notebook of intimate music sketches.
Little by little, those usual and necessary walks, turned into a personal reflection on the magical and symbolic force of the river. A force that has always inspired all kinds of artists: eternal becoming, the existential journey, the path of one’s life...

out of the deep
I wrote this song several months ago when everything flowed without anxiety, while I was interested to explore the sense of loss, fear and finding a way out.
Just by coincedence, it comes out now, at a time (Coronavirus time) when we all look forward to seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

The image of Travelling Clouds is both real and symbolic: in physical reality clouds are blown by the wind and it is fascinating to observe their path, their abandonment to that flow; but they are also us, human beings, in perpetual movement, driven by the circumstances of life.

Since I was a child, I have lived in homes with plenty of antiques. This could be a burden for a little girl: it was like living in a museum, surrounded by enchanting objects I could only look at them. Antiques always have a memory to hand down; they radiate a special vibration, a human vibration that is hard to find in the new objects of our digital age. We will always need this vibration and we may learn it from the past. I have a particular love for the antique photos: they were taken only in exceptional circumstances, to immortalize special moments of people’s lives. These three songs tell in music about the story of three little women seen on a daguerreotype that has strongly inspired me. I have called them Gabrielle, Juliette, and Blanchette. (June 2019)
where night never comes
SoloPiano.com Best Album Overall 2018
Where Night Never Comes is a place of memory. This album is all about my life, my passions, my interests and it tells you about my loved ones, my land, my surroundings. It’s the soundtrack of my daily life: a collection of big and small things that have moved me, impressed me, left a trace on me. All together they symbolize my ideal day. A day that all of us sometimes experience, a day we wish it never finishes. (October 2018)
It was produced thanks to a successfully Kickstarter campaign and selected by Kickstarter as "Project We Love".
Other Lines is my first published EP as a composer: the 4 Piano Songs included are part of an extensive work I’m carrying out based on Eugenio Montale’s Poems. I have always been passionate about this outstanding Italian poet: his lines talk about the landscape that surrounds me, the sea, the countryside, the Italian summers… I may recognize myself in his poems, especially for his particular sense and intimacy almost feminine.
