We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls. (Anais Nin)

I was born in Sassari on September, 12th 1978 under the sign of Virgo.

My parents are Cesare and Bruna, he is a radiologist in Sassari’s University clinic and she is an Italian literature teacher. My brother is Luigi.

I obtained my school–leaving certificate at “Azuni” Classical High School in Sassari. Then I left Sardinia and moved to Milan to study foreign languages at “Università Statale”. Milan gave me the great chance to enter the show business.

Everything began in 1999 with a lucky trial for “Striscia la notizia”, a funny TV show that launched me as a show-girl, a so-called “velina”. I had a great success and I worked for that show until 2002.

After that amazing experience I started looking around, searching for new projects and I was involved in TV shows, commercials and serials.

My next goal is to become a movie star: I’m moving my first steps in this field joining some international productions.
