At Elite Model Look we say: “your differences make our world”. What makes you different?
What makes me unique is the fact that I’m quite shy. I know that some people would say that it's a flaw, but I believe that shyness is characteristic that pushes you to get the best out of yourself, to discover your limits and your strengths.
What is your passion?
My passions are cooking, reading and tennis - I've been playing tennis since I was 14 years old.
Who or what inspires you to succeed?
My dad, he has built his career with commitment and by making many sacrifices.
Tell us your favourite…
Song: I love I Just Called To Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder. It’s a classic, it conveys passionate love.
Sport: Tennis. I’m inspired by the great champions. I also love skiing and I would love to ski competitively, everything about mountain sports and the beautiful silence you get on the slopes is wonderful.
Model: Chiara Baschetti, I know she participated in Elite Model Look and despite not winning she managed to develop a beautiful career. I have met her, she's very nice and with a lot of determination, which I think is really important in modelling.
Film star: Robert Zemeckis is an exceptional director who always tries to convey values.
Where are you happiest?
At the seaside with friends after a beach volleyball game!
How does it feel to represent Italy at the 35th Elite Model Look World Final?
Winning is an indescribable emotion. I know how much everyone wanted to win, I feel super lucky. It is still incredible for me to think that I will have the opportunity to meet so many new people who will come from all over the world. I am excited about the prospect of an exciting and unique opportunity! I heard about the contest because follow the Romagna Shopping Valley shopping centre on social media, which is close to where I live, and they announced that they were having a casting. My parents came with me to support me. I took part in the casting to get an experience and I still can't believe I won! I want to become a model because I like to travel and discover new cultures and new people who have different experiences to me.

Italy is known for art, culture, good food and its wonderful cities. If I had to choose one thing to represent Italy, it would be a nice pizza Margherita! It is world famous, and represents us all over the world as a symbol of our amazing cuisine. Italy is one of the most famous countries in the world - this has made me develop a sense of pride for my nation, I am proud of our culture.
