After having graduated from Scientific High School, Elisa Savi enrolls at the University of Modern Literature with a major in History of Cinema.

Always passionate about the history of costume and fashion, cinema and editing, she leaves university in 1979 when she has the opportunity to start working at Fiorucci, a very avant-garde brand, in their Ufficio Stile (Style Department).

She begins her apprenticeship as assistant to the Product Manager of the Fioruccino line and, two years later, she receives a job offer from Prénatal, where she will work for six years, first as assistant, then as Product Manager.

In 1987, she is hired by Compagnia Internazionale Abbigliamento as Product Manager of the Valentini Junior, Snoopy, La Compagnie du Mielchildren's lines and, later, of the “Wrangler Jeans” line.

In 1990, for personal reasons she moves to Venice and is hired by the Coin Department Store chain as Head of children's lines, an experience which continues for another six years.

In 1995, she meets the director and actor Moni Ovadia, her future husband, with whom she establishes a romantic and then a professional relationship.

Moni Ovadia proposes that she leave her job and that she begin collaborating with him as costume designer and video-maker. She accepts.
