Marina Roberti's long career in costume design started in 1993 at the Teatro Lirico Sperimentale Festival of Spoleto. Since then she's worked on theatre plays, TV series and several films, including international co-productions such as Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's Twelve (2004) and Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette (2005). Roberti gave a masterclass on costume design based on her work with the superb 18th century wardrobe for Carlos Saura's Io, Don Giovanni.
