I was born in Italy and raised in the country famous for its renaissance contributions, arts and culture stole my attention from the very beginning. I spent my early adult years in England, where I studied international law and worked in investment banking. London gave me a taste for diversity, design, eclecticism and novelty.
I moved to Dubai in the year 2000 just when the magic of this city began to happen. In Dubai I met my soulmate, who is a wonderful Emirati man and for the past 12 years my journey has been nothing short than amazing. Dubai is the accomplishment of my life.
The inspiration behind Kanzi is my personality, my experiences, my friends and my achievements. Being in my early forties, my greatest endeavours have been motherhood and spearheading the creation of an international financial centre from its very foundations. I have lived a privileged life as a woman, juggling two extraordinary roles, one of a mother and the other of a successful career woman. I am currently the Chief Legal Officer of the DIFC Authority, DIFC Data Protection Commissioner, Secretary of the Board of Directors.
I thought long and hard about what the next part of my life should be about and how it should represent my true passion. The answer was simple, jewellery. Instantly, I knew I wanted to create jewellery that stood out, but wasn't over the top precious. Kanzi reflects my desire for creativity and my compulsion to be audacious.
