Welcome to the website of
I was born in Israel in 1973 and, at the tender age of three months, moved to Milan where I happily grew up in the shadow of the Teatro alla Scala.
After studying philosophy at the Statale University, where I graduated in Theoretical Philosophy with a thesis on the Demonic in Jacques Offenbach's Contes d'Hoffmann, I went to Berlin to learn German, the secret language my parents spoke when they didn't want me to understand them.
In Berlin, I did a long internship at the Staatsoper, writing programme notes and working on productions as an Italian coach and eager "assistant to the assistant director."
I then directed for ten years the press office and editions of Ferrara Musica, often having the opportunity to collaborate with Claudio Abbado, under whose supervision I created, together with Alberica Archinto, a video for Euroarts dedicated to Schönberg's Pelleas und Melisande.
For many years I have been working as a translator from English, French and German, collaborating in particular with Il Saggiatore on the translation of texts on musical subjects, including the letters of the Mozart family.
In 2021, Zecchini Editions published my first novel, The Red Sound.
I live in London with the composer Nimrod Borenstein and our daughter Alma
