I’ve always loved fashion and I had the fortune to have been always sought by top Italian designers. Gianni and Donatella Versace dressed me for every appearance on TV throughout 1988 to 1991, plus one of their legendary “couture dresses”, is displayed in a famous museum in New York.
In 1991 Valentino chose to dress me as his “only” television personality. Then there will be Giorgio Armani, Alberta Ferretti and Roberto Cavalli. At that time, it was unheard of, someone on Television wearing “Famous Designer” clothes.
In 1992 I worked for one year in Spain with Telecinco in the show “Vip 92”.
I came back one year later and I presented with Giorgio Mastrota, “Bellezze al Bagno” directed by Gino Landi. For the same show I recorded the song “Magicalibù” written by Zucchero.
On the 20th of July 1994 I had my first daughter, Rebecca Jewel.
I really didn’t want to go back on Television immediately but I had such an incredible offer with the show “Una Sera al Luna Park” again with Pippo Baudo. In 1995 I’m on “Arriba! Arriba!” on RAI 2, and I recorded the song “Arriba Arriba”.
For two years, I totally dedicated myself to a few experiences in the theatre. I acted in a the musical called “Women of Pleasure” by Barbara Alberti, where I was tutored by Franca Rame and was on stage in Milan with Marisa Berensen, Clorinne Clery, Anna Kanakis, Carmen Russo and Franco Oppini. I was also in a show which did the box office record of the season in Italy, called “Letto a tre piazze” with Zuzzurro e Gaspare.
In 1998 the American film director Michael Hoffman wants me to play the wife of Nick Bottom, interpreted by Kevin Kline, in “Midnight Summer’s Dream” starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Kevin Kline, Calista Flockhart, Rupert Everett and Sophie Marceau.
The following year, I did the musical “Lightning Strikes” directed by Daniele Sala.
