Two years ago the Italian event designer Lavinia Rittatore Vonwiller followed her heart and moved to New York City where she was hired to launch the incredible and internationally known Simmetrico, an event agency that specializes in the creation of experiential and cultural events.
Following her graduation from Bocconi University and prior to her move to NYC, Lavinia worked for international event and communication agencies between London and Milano.
