Elena graduated in Architecture (five-year degree) from the Faculty of Architecture of the Polytechnic University of Milan in 1995, and went on to specialise in the restoration of monuments in 2001.
She has worked on a freelance basis from the outset, and in 1996 began to operate in the world of hospitality, working and travelling with the Viaggi del Ventaglio SpA in Milan, undertaking architecture and interior design projects for holiday villages worldwide (Brazil, Santo Domingo, Cuba and Egpyt) and in Italy (Calabria, Puglia, Sicily, Sardinia).
In 2001, she began her cooperation with Tivigest in Padua and Atahotels in Milan, which manage hotels and holiday villages by the sea and in the mountains in Italy and Switzerland.
In 2003, she worked with French tour operator Donatello Paris to build a hotel in Sardinia.
In 2011, she became artistic director at Terme di Sirmione SpA, for which she was responsible for four hotels of different categories (Gran Hotel Terme*****, Hotel Sirmione****, Hotel Fonte Boiola***, Hotel Acquaviva**** and the Aquaria and Catullo spas), dealing with new designs and restructuring.
Over her professional life, she has increasingly specialised in the field of hospitality in all its forms: hotels, villages, hospitality, catering, wellness and spas.
