Music runs deep in their family, with both siblings passionately embracing their musical heritage. Angelina’s early musical influences include iconic acts such as the Rolling Stones, Nirvana, and Aretha Franklin, alongside a profound respect for the late 16th to early 17th-century compositions, particularly from the Venetian school composers like Giovanni Gabrieli and Carlo Gesualdo, known for their polyphonic sacred music and madrigals. Her academic journey led her to a scientific high school in September 2014, which she later paused due to her father’s untimely demise. The family moved to Milan in 2016, where she not only pursued her education further but also ventured into music, performing in a band with her brother on drums.
