Other Research Interests

The particular interest in the world of sounds arose from the experience matured over the many years of artistic career and musical studies. In details, Giulia performed with the New Pop Orchestra (from 2006 to 2009) and the Wind and Percussion Philharmonic Orchestra "Mousikè" (from 2013 to 2015). Furthermore, she took part in a variety of ensembles of both I.S.S.M. "Cantelli" (Novara, Italy) and I.S.S.M "Donizetti" (Bergamo, Italy), where she studied.

Her main hobby is reading novels of 18th and 19th centuries of English and Russian literature in particular. Feminist literature is another interest arose in the last years.
