Originally from Rome, Simona is a young, forward thinking designer whose vision is to bring the spirit and the culture of post-modernist Milan to the United States of America. Her store, Via Solferino, located in the heart of Miami's Design District, captures these ideals with a distinction like no other. The wall to wall style emanates a combination of modernity and elegance that draws every kind of clientele, from gallery hoppers to the famous elite.
The natural charismatic Simona has a sixth sense for coming trends: after bringing the most advanced Italian design to Miami, she was one of the first to notice the new international influences in the design circuit around the world and bring this style back home to Miami. Surrounding herself with designers, artists and other progressive individuals, Simona has left her mark in Miami's Design District, where she has been recognized as one of the touchstones of design in South Florida's creative world.
