Whilst studying Communication Science in Milan (Italy) Valentina was seduced by Milano Film Festival where she started for three months. The months quickly became three years, which she spent exploring several areas such as events organization of music shows and urban design exhibitions, film programming and new talents research. After completing her degree Valentina went on to study Cinema at the University of Bologna wanting to pursue her passion for film further. After two years, mainly spent watching films at the local"Cineteca" (!), the urge of change popped up once again and pushed her to take a leap into UK film business and moved to London.
Luckily The Bureau was there to welcome her in June 2006 offering a few months of work experience during which her duties included managing the office and assisting the company.
She must have enjoyed it because she hasn't left since then, going on to work on the production of films including FAR NORTH, LEAVING EVA, LONDON RIVER. In her role as assistant producer she was able to get involved in each phase of the production of the feature UNMADE BEDS, which was certainly the most challenging project, that also gave her the opportunity to work as a music supervisor for its exciting and fresh soundtrack. Last year Valentina also produced a music video for the song "who am I", by the singer-song writer Lail Arad... and she loved it so much she might want to do it again!
