Simona is a native Sicilian, residing in Palermo, south of Italy. After graduating in art at the Academy of Fine Arts of Palermo, she moved to Milan to study photography at the Università dell' Immagine founded by the fashion photographer Fabrizio Ferri. She lived in Milan working as a photographer's assistant in the fashion field. Back in her home town of Palermo in 2004, she continued her personal conceptual research, which brought her to a new form of artistic intervention, the posting of giant photographs on city walls. In the 2013 she moved to London, where she started to reflect on the experience of migration in relation to the changing conditions of identity in our times. Simona is now moving between Palermo, London and Berlin looking for subjects close to her sicilian roots for a new photographic project.
