Alessia graduated in classical harp at the Arrigo Pedrollo Conservatory of Vicenza, in Music Therapy at the G. Ferrari school of specialization in Padua and in Celtic Harp at the Agostino Steffani Conservatory of Castelfranco Veneto. She has also studied Humanistic Music Therapy at the Italian Federation of Music Therapists. Alessia has been teaching classical and Celtic harp since 2006 in private institutes and state schools. She directed a private music school and founded an ‘Atelier of the body and mind’ where she led meetings and music therapy projects aimed at children. In recent years Alessia has also specialized in the historical Gaelic harps of Ireland and Scotland, and the 18th-century Irish harp repertory preserved in the manuscripts of Edward Bunting. She plays a copy of the 'Downhill' harp, an early 18th-century Irish instrument.
