Ilaria's artistic journey began with her study of classical piano as a child, but she graduated from the Accademia di Arte Drammatica Silvio D'Amico in Rome with a love for acting. She won her first acting roles on Italian and French television shows such as Vento Di Mare, La Cavaliere, La Mondaine, and Polly West Est De Retour. At the same time, Ilaria honed her acting skills in live theatre. She performed in several Italian productions including La Turandot directed by Roberto Guicciardini and several theatrical pieces by Campanile.
After establishing a successful acting career, Ilaria broadened her artistic scope and turned to directing. Using all of her savings, she moved to New York City to study at The New School and New York University, as well as attend private classes such as Writers Boot Camp. In New York, Ilaria produced six short films including Keirkegaard in Mushroom Sauce (finalist for the Troisi prize and winner of the New School Award) and Pizza!
As a multi-faceted artist, Ilaria has enjoyed a prolific career as a writer. Her diverse and ecletic work includes screenplays, novellas, novels, and serial writing. In 2000, she was awarded the Prevert 2000 and the Premio Firenze for her novel, Scosse.
Our Italian Husband is Ilaria's feature film directorial debut.
