Kicca

Born and raised in Rome, I have always had a passion for photography, design, and travel. While I may have discovered my love for photography in Italy, it's my adopted home of Buenos Aires where I realized my passion for teaching it. 

After studying graphic design from the Instituto Europeo di Design in Rome, I moved to London to study photography at the University of Westminster. After school, I lived and worked in the city for 18 years as an art director and a photographer. I even worked as the Creative Director at Conde Nast UK, where I oversaw the art of four magazines and worked with prestigious clients like Harrods and Tate Modern Art Museum. Meanwhile, in London, I discovered another art form, the tango. I fell in love with the dance and started dancing professional, allowing me to tour and compete across Europe. Ultimately, it was this passion that helped me make the decision to move to Buenos Aires, the birthplace of the tango. 

For me, the city beamed with a lively creative energy, unlike any other city in the world, and I was hooked! Even today, Buenos Aires inspires me. Beyond my photography, I wanted to share this inspiration directly with travelers. I began leading photography tours, allowing guests to look at the city in a totally new light - literally and metaphorically! Leading tours motivates me to find new exciting parts of the city everyday while meeting creative minds from all over the world. Many of my guests don’t know much about photography, so it’s amazing to see express themselves in this new art form as they simultaneously fall in love with both Buenos Aires and photography.
