During her formation, she collaborated with the Capitoline Picture Gallery (2014-15) and the Barberini and Corsini National Galleries (2016-17), carrying out historical-bibliographic updating of the catalogue entries, and with the Palazzo Braschi – Museo di Roma (2018), where she studied the sixteenth-century graffiti from the house of Rodolfo Pio da Carpi.
In 2017 she participated profitably in the training course on the use of the SIGEC Web system, at the Central Institute for Catalog and Documentation - ICCD of Rome, and the following year to a fundraising specialization course for cultural institutions.
