At the age of 6, after performing in a school play for a local theatre, she realized how much she loved to tell stories. At 19, she starred in her first independent feature that was presented at the Venice film festival. The film captured the attention of two American producers who invited Elisabetta and the director to New York to discuss shooting an English version of the film. After visiting the Big Apple, she fell in love with its energy and the off-Broadway theaters. Shortly after that trip, she moved to the States. Starting over and acting in a new language was very challenging for a young Italian girl, but she has loved every minute of the journey.

In Los Angeles, she had the opportunity to observe and learn the process of movie making, and how important it is to tell a good story, with creativity and authenticity. She finally felt at home as she fell in love with how many people, like her, are inspired to wake up every morning to be part of this wonderful process. Producing has become a new chapter in her life, and she is beyond excited to be able to support and work with talented people who are creating, building and sharing stories that need to be told.After travelling to Africa, she felt the urge to begin working on projects that have the potential to inspire, educate, and change herself as well as others.
