Anna has been practising the Performing Arts since childhood. Aged four, she entered a preparatory music class at the Turin Centro Goitre music school. Aged six, at the same school, she also began attending singing and piano classes. By eight, she started training in Ballet and Jazz Dance at the Danza Studio dancing school of Turin. Anna discovered a passion for drama aged 16 during a year spent at the acting class of Pietro di Legami. To cultivate each of these Performing Arts, that same year she accepted a place on the pre-professional course of Accademia dello Spettacolo of Turin, directed by Mario Restagno, where she studied for three years.
Anna then was trained as a professional performer at Scuola Formazione Attore of Accademia dello Spettacolo, Turin. There she obtained a diploma with the top grade, as a professional triple threat performer: actress, singer and dancer. During these three academic years (2012- 2015) she received a comprehensive education in the performing arts, studying acting with most prominent teachers and directors in Italy (Fabiana Gariglio, Paolo Vallerga, Mario Restagno, Andrea Speranza, Andrea Bochicchio, Sergio Troiano, Franco Abba, Massimo Giardini). Anna also further trained her voice, refining her vocal technique, exploring different styles with a particular focus on musical theatre. These studies were overseen by a range of qualified teachers, singers and composers (Angelo Fernando Galeano, Sara Memore, Cristina Lai, Giovanni Maria Lori, Stefania Piovesan). To complete her education she trained in several styles of dance (Modern jazz, Ballet, Contemporary and Tap) alongside international choreographers and dancers (Don Marasigan, Margherita Marasigan, Laura Scaringella, Philippe Pierson, Emanuel Alba). Anna also attended theoretical classes on subjects such as: the theory and history of the performing arts and practiced piano, taught by Sara Memore.
In September 2017 Anna moved to London to attend the MA in Musical Theatre – production at Goldsmiths University of London, to perfection her knowledge about the industry.
