You mentioned that you’re currently studying law. What kind of law do you hope to work with in the future?
Intellectual Property (IP). I had an internship experience in the field of intellectual property with brands and I really liked the environment and the context of work itself. I feel that IP has the best opportunities for law—it combines both art and law, which are two of my favourite areas.
So you like art as well?
I studied Art History for five years in high school and I like all kinds of art. I’m especially into the collage technique, in particular Mimmo Rotella’s work, but my favourite painter is Caravaggio.
You come from a background of mixed heritage. Where do you consider to be home?
That’s a very hard question. I currently live in Milan, where I study, but I can’t really say where I’m from because I’ve lived half my life in another place. I can say I’m Italian, but I can also say I’m French, although I’ve never lived there. If I had to pick, I’d say home for me now is Milan as it embodies my lifestyle.
I’d like to become a lawyer and work anywhere but Italy.
I like to travel and explore different cultures from a non-touristic point of view. I travel a lot to Germany because my boyfriend is German, and a lot to France because I’m part French and have a lot of family there. I’ll be staying in Paris for the next semester. Studying in Milan has opened many new doors and points of view for me. It’s very dynamic and it’s given me the opportunity to broaden my horizons.
Best piece of advice I’ve received:
To work hard for sure, because that pays off, and to be ambitious. If you work hard, and are ambitious, you can always get up when you feel down.
