One day, invited to dinner at the parents, and amazed by the beauty of Mariacarla, proposed to the Italian youth have a future as a model. Mariacarla, surprised, had never considered a beautiful woman, or if you want to considered a cheerful woman in dress, almost always black as she herself confesses, but animated by his mother allowed Catallini to photograph it and then send your photos to different modeling agencies.

A few weeks already I would have the first proposals of various agencies, by finally signing by the Agency Women Milan, but it put as a condition to be able to combine work as a model with their studies, during the next two years.
