ABOUT ME

Graduated in Archival and Library Heritage at the University of Salerno and graduated in Conservation of Cultural Heritage, I became a member of AIB with recognition of my professional qualification in 2014 and I started collaborating with some private companies in Campania, Lazio and Tuscany with I carry out cataloging work on examples from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, as well as modern and periodical printed texts. Over the years I have carried out numerous cataloging and inventory recovery interventions at various public and private libraries throughout the country (including the Capodimonte Astronomical Observatory Library in Naples).
Currently I am managing the Library of the Sisters of Montevergine in the position of librarian.
The passion for rare and ancient books leads me above all to the world of collecting, collaborating with various antique bookstores and numerous private individuals on national and international territory. I carry out evaluations, researches, acquisitions and authentications to the book heritage and / or rare and valuable texts, documents and antique prints. This new assignment takes me around Italy and the world in search of copies or for various commissions by bookstores and bibliophiles.
Between 2019 and the beginning of 2020 I am the intermediary of a very rare and beautiful work: "Il Decamerone de messer Giouanni Boccaccio ..." printed in Venice in 1518 by Augustino de Zanni da Portese (present in only four Italian libraries) and I also deal with the research and acquisition of rare and valuable volumes for some Italian libraries. In 2020 I research, on behalf of an important international bookshop, the original series "Suikoden" of 1836 by Utagawa Kuniyoshi.
I also deal with the design and creation of catalogs for individuals, websites, logos and social media (in 2020 social manager of the Netphilo Publishing company in Milan).
In 2020 I created the first national "Online Book Fair", obtaining over 200 thousand views. In the second edition, re-launched on February 1, 2021, I obtained adhesion to the project by Isabel Allende, Glenn Cooper and D'ORO Collection.
As a lover of photography in 2014 I ranked third in the national photographic competition of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism. Passionate about oriental cultures, I focused on the study of ancient Japanese texts, Japanese woodcuts and prints, also participating in various courses and conferences throughout the country.
