I'm 30 years old, I live in a small city in the center of Italy. I love to be challenged, to travel, keep informed and get to know realities that are different to what I'm used to. I am always on the lookout for something new, both physically and mentally. However, I also need some alone time at times, just to stop and analyze all that I have experienced.

Our readers would love to get to know you more Simona. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you?
I always try to do my best in everything and I love my job. I think that my power is my passion itself
Simona, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?
My passion in life is photography and travel. I start as a photographer a few years ago just for passion and fun. I started portrait some friends of mine and then I decided to improve in photography. I attended a master at the most famous photography school in Rome, the Scuola Romana di Fotografia. I still keep on studying photography on my own.
Who is your inspiration in life Simona? How do you keep inspired?
I don’t have just one hero, I have a lot of them!! And all of them have inspired me in different ways. In my private life, my hero is my family.
In photography, I must say one of the most inspiring for me nowadays is Tim Walker. I love his way of mixing reality and imagination and from there creating great fashion editorials.
We all make mistakes Simona, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about a time being a Photographer, you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I am very permissive and sometimes I should be more strict.
