Where do I come from?
I come from Turin, a city in northern Italy
Why do I sing?
Singing has always been my favorite thing to do, especially together with other people. That makes me happy!
And what do I like apart from singing?
I am also a pianist and I love to work with other singers.
My own personal musical highlight?
This year I have done many interesting musical things: I sang both in opera choirs and as a soloist, and one of the best moments was when I was accepted to the university.
Never stop believing: singing is balm for the soul, and whatever happens, you will still come out of it enriched.
