Valentina Silvestrini

She has a naturally curly head of hair and in third grade founded a monthly magazine called Magiche Amiche (“Magic Friends”), brought out in ten handwritten copies sewn together with a needle and thread by her mother. Out of a love of exhibitions, museums and other forms of display, she left her native Umbria to take a degree in architecture in Rome. When not in Florence, the city where she has chosen to live, she’s likely to be wandering around Asia with a backpack. She dreams of cities with no cars and has a weakness for modern collectibles. Editor-in-chief for design and architecture at Cosebelle, she also writes for Artribune.
