SET DESIGN STUDIO
Inside the Superstudio of Milan, in an area of fifty square metres, there is a corridor of shelves filled with numerous colorful backdrops, fabrics, curtains and velvets. Behind a chair and a leather armchair – and, further off, behind a garden bench and stool – there are spectacular back-cloths against the wall and, in the empty corners, other rolled-up back-cloths, wooden planks and cans of paint.
The business of scenography is carried out in this setting, colorful and seemingly chaotic, where stage sets for still photography and movies are designed and built. We rent out more than a hundred backdrops hand-painted on canvas, metal substrate, linen, velvet, satin and even on fur. You can also rent objects for scenery or props. A few pieces, mainly seating, are available immediately, otherwise we search for what is needed, be it furniture or merely a single object.
She completed her secondary school studies at the European School in Brussels, where she also earned a degree in music at the Académie de Musique d’Ixelles. She graduated in set design in Milan at the Academy of Brera in 1993 and worked at the Teatro Alla Scala under the direction of light-theater designer, Gianni Notari. In 1994 she became assistant to the designer Luigi Camarilla and worked with him until, in 1996, she opened her set design activity at Superstudio in Milan. She then began her collaboration with Italian and foreign photographers, production houses, fashion houses and publishers such as Peter Lindbergh, Giovanni Gastel, Fabrizio Ferri, Albert Watson, Armani, Etro, Ferrè, Pignatelli, Condé Nast, Hachette, Rizzoli and many others.
At the same time, she continues to pursue her passion for music and art, and has worked with film-directors and musicians for art projects and videos, primarily for television channels such as Arté (Franco-German television) and Tele+.
