Matera 2019

Having obtained her Diploma in Interior Architecture at the European Institute of Design in 1997, she initially collaborated until 2001 with the Valentino Haute Couture fashion house in the design and realisation of shop fittings within the world of visual merchandising in the company-owned boutiques around the world.

This experience lead her to frequent a cosmopolitan environment that was alive and multifaceted, evolving into a permanent partnership with the RomaEuropa Festival, an international event of contemporary theatre, music and dance that takes place in the principal theatres of the city. Here, for almost ten years, she was responsible for all organisational sectors, from the interpretation of stage sets, to production in close contact with the artists, through to the promotion of the scheduled events. Meeting the love of her life in 1997, Rebecca came to know Matera. After such extensive professional experience and the birth of her first two children, in 2010 she decided to move here. This was the year in which the city became a candidate for European Capital of Culture for the year 2019. Initially chosen to work on the Radio3 festival, Materadio, her collaboration became permanent, overseeing large and small events of the Matera-Basilicata 2019 Foundation.
