The first is a debut film in which she stars alongside Alessandro Roja and Stefano Fresi in the chronicle of 48 crazy hours, while in the second - directed by Guido Chiesa – she stars alongside Diego Abatantuono. The third is the story of a father-son relationship that offers the actress the opportunity to share the screen with Marco D'Amore. She returned on TV in Riccardo Milani’s, miniseries "Di padre in figlia". The director will also direct it her in the 2017  film "Mamma o papà?", A comedy with Antonio Albanese and Paola Cortellesi.
