I was born in Italy. Since I was little I enjoyed learning foreign languages, and I travelled across Europe. I liked reading manga, but in 2006 I encountered noh theatre, and fell in love with the art. In 2007 I came to Japan for the first time, and started training under Kongō school noh actor Udaka Michishige. My activities as scholar and practitioner aim at disseminating noh within and outside Japan. When I was a student, I used to play in a band: even today music is one of my passions.
I am a noh scholar and a practitioner. My research focuses on practice, from transmission and training, to performance and reception. Recently, I have been studying the relationship between amateurs and professionals in the world of noh. I am also interested in intercultural theatre.

In this seminar we research, experience, and discuss Kyoto culture in English. What is “Kyoto culture”, and what makes it unique? Are there differences in the way this culture is understood in Japan and abroad? How can we talk about Kyoto culture to a non-Japanese audience? What approach should we take when explaining Kyoto culture in English? These are some of the questions we will try to answer in this seminar by looking at traditional and contemporary aspects of Kyoto culture.
University means freedom to choose what interests one wishes to pursue. At the same time, one has responsibility for those choices. During this precious time, I encourage students to experience university classes, club activities, part-time jobs, and travels. At the core of all these experiences is Kyoto Sangyo University. Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the extraordinary number of cultural properties and events Kyoto offers, and share their experiences in class. Finally, noh theatre, which is my research field, is a medium through which it is possible to study literature, history, religion, music, dance, and crafts. I hope students will take the chance to enjoy noh performances while studying at Kyoto Sangyo University!
