Inherited the passion for every kind of art from her mum, an abstract painter, she chose to dedicate her life to design taking a bachelor's degree with top scores in Industrial Design in the Poliarte Design School (Ancona). She is now pride to express her passion and creativity as a part of Nussbaumer's team.
