Her great interest in medieval music, ranging from Gregorian Chant to Ars Nova, has led over the years to collaborations with specialists in this repertoire, above all with the ensemble Mala Punica, directed by Pedro Memelsdorff. In addition, she has furthered her studies through courses in Semiology and Gregorian Chant, held in Cremona by N.Albarosa, J.B.Göschl, G.Conti e Tito Molisani, and specialization course “Ars Nova in Europa” held by University Tor Vergata in Rome in 2008.
