Francesca Donetto is one of many thousands of Italian young women who want to make it as a model in the hard fashion world of Italy—and especially that of Milano.
I shot her latest photos in my studio in Milano last month and got to know a young girl full of beauty and passion.
Francesca is from Treviso, close to Venezia, and is born on December 10, 1992. Her measurements are 92–70–94 cm, or 36–27½–37 in. Her height of 182 cm—6 ft in Imperial—does not only make her a good model, but a skilled basketballer: she has played the sport for the last ﬁve years with considerable success. She love the cinema and is a very positive young woman, with a great vision, even in times like today. Even if she would like to make it in the fashion world, she says that it is not the most important thing in life.—Thomas Salme, Photographer
