Simple paper maché, watercolor paint, paper twine, and sometimes natural elements such as bark, lichens, and dried flowers are her elements of choice.
While growing up, Alessandra was always interested in materials and their reuse. As an adult, she learned techniques for manipulating paper from French and Japanese artists whose work she admired online.
If you live near Rome, she offers paper floral centerpieces and additional decor as rental items. Often brides will choose to keep the flowers they carry as a memento of the day.
I'm admiring the way unfurled ends of paper twine add fullness to a bouquet. Alessandra told me this type of twine is called filo finlandese in Italian.
