Here are some photographs of two Italian cities usually overcrowded with people:Venice and Rome.In summertime Venice had somehow returned to what it once was many years ago. Without crowds of tourists poured through the narrow streets and the cruise ships that monstrously invaded the lagoon, the silent canals could finally breath and the golden beach of the Lido was peacefully in harmony with the sea. Rome,in late spring and fall, looked like certain sunny summers when the city empties itself for holidays and the sultry heat. Only few people going around along the streets or in empty squares.

Geographer, photographer and passionate environmentalist, she has been travelling the world for years studying the interrelaionship between people and enviroment and taking street and documentary photographs. Her essential subject is social life focusing in every day life , cultural stories and contemporary issues. Photography work: Solo and Collective Exhibitions in Italy - Collective exhibitions in USA, Spain and Japan.
