L’Archivio di Monserrato – Rome


“I moved to Rome permanently in 1999 and then I definitely fell in love with this city, which became one of my main sources of inspiration: its pure beauty is unquestionable and I’m particularly sensitive to beautiful things. I like living and working here, but I also enjoy leaving it: when I come back, I find it more interesting and inspiring then ever. I call Rome home right now, but only because my kids are living here at the moment. The day they leave it to go anywhere else, that place will be home for me. Personally, I’m a gipsy, so I don’t need any home: my heart is where my family is.”
