Cinque Terre Photographer
Hi! We are Debora, David and little Leonardo. We are a family of creatives who live between Moneglia, a seaside village near the Cinque Terre, and Genoa, the capital of Liguria.
A lover of well-being, health and good food, she studied oriental philosophy, focussing on the Yin and Yang concept and macrobiotics alongside Master René Lévy for over ten years, where she met and worked with Professor Franco Berrino and Shigeko Nakamura. Passionate about cooking and baking, she has had direct experiences with Michelin starred chefs, working in London for Alain Ducasse and deepening her studies at the Gambero Rosso laboratory. She worked in the fashion world as a hair stylist for many years, at MUA and as Art Director at Aldo Coppola. She is a yoga teacher, specializing in yoga in pregnancy and meditation. In Florence, she deepened her studies in holistic bodywork and care. She is a co-founder of Lovvia and art director for their award-winning short films.
I am an affectionate, curious child who loves words and numbers. I like playing with other children and discovering the world together with my mum and dad. I love music, especially the great classics of the 50s and 60s.
