About

After graduating in Knitwear at Ent Art Polimoda in 1997, immediately began my career in the style at Alessandro dell’Acqua. Shorter the duration of the collaboration because it becomes strong in me the need to manually put it through the creation of embroidery and accessories made with recycled materials, such as traces of samples required to the markets, of which the office was full and that would have been thrown , together with all the waste that a small metal "tire" can provide.


Thus was born the idea for a project called Officina Vagante made with a friend, Floriana, and carried around the world through India, Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Mexico. Our aim was to enrich us with suggestions, visit landfill sites and disused (from which to retrieve certain materials), and finally creating accessories and sell them through markets and word of mouth. In 2000, the date of our return to Italy, Officina Vagante becomes a brand whose mission is "delivering products in an industrial scale but by doing craft."


Today, my journey continues as a craft at a time of quality, unique, handmade personally and that always stubbornly materials otherwise destined for "death." The project becomes BAGS AHEAD, almost a battle cry intended to affirm the need for uniqueness through a "purse". The feeling for the recovery and the search for raw materials become indispensable and I love to do side by side to collaborations with other artists and artisans which confirm the uniqueness and originality of my items that boldly depart from the laws imposed by the market. And so, thanks in part to care for the design, my creations survive the time and mode.
