Caterina was born in Florence in 1981, and studied in Bologna, where she graduated with a thesis on the work of American photographer Francesca Woodman.
After an experience in the digital department at Magnum Photos Agency in Paris, she spent some years working as an assistant to photographers Ilse Frech, Giampiero Assumma, and Abbas and Patrick Zachmann (Magnum Photos). She currently works as free lance photographer.
In the year 2010/2011 she has been the invited artist of the year at the École Municipale d’Arts Plastiques (Art School) in Vigneux-sur-Seine, where she has carried out a personal photographic project and workshops with students.
In 2012 she published the book Palacinche (ed. de l'Olivier in France and Fandango Libri in Italy), made in collaboration with comic artist Alessandro Tota. Palacinche has also been published by Reprodukt in Germany (Palatschinken).
Caterina is mostly interested in intimacy, memory and narration, and she focuses her work on these themes.
Since September 2006 Caterina lives and works in Paris.
