Emiliana by name and by birth,
raised between the great river and the sea.
She travels the world for her modeling work
but Italy remains her home.
Emiliana by name, Emilian by origin – to pinpoint it, born in the town of Comacchio, in the region of Emilia.
Emiliana Carli dreamt of being a ballerina, but during her first dance contest her beauty opened a portal into a different dream: she won a modeling agency's prize and was whisked into the world of fashion. In Milan she acquired financial independence, learnt to pose and to model. And to fly. Today Emi is one of the world's most in-demand top models, and though she may have shed some of her Emilian layers, her style remains Italian to the core. Benetton offers her modern outfits that are simple and versatile. In them she recognizes the authentic Italian values of the world in which she grew up, such as attention to detail and to materials – unmistakable codes of the elegance that makes her irresistibly Italian.
