I'm a wall painting conservator, and I'm currently working as a Research Support Officer II for the conservation of the wall paintings cycle of the Great Siege by Perez d’Aleccio, located in the Grand Council Chamber of the Grand Master’s Palace in Valletta.

After graduating in 2017 at the SUPSI (University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland in Lugano) in conservation of wall paintings, stucco, and stone I started to work as a freelance and in collaboration with other restoration companies in Italy. I worked on the conservation project of the Main Altar in the Basilica of San Luigi Gonzaga in Castiglione delle Stiviere and I restored a late nineteenth-century votive chapel. In 2018 thanks to the logistic and instrumental support of the SUPSI I restored an important renaissance wall painting from Bernardino Luini's pupil using some LASER systems to remove lime wash layers.

I started in 2019 to work with SUPSI as a research assistant for the project "The conservation of scagliola altar frontals in Ticino" the research aimed to study the original technique and the conservation issues thus so I was able to continue the study started during my Master's thesis.
