After completing her studies in Italy, Charlotte studied in Germany, at the Hochschule für Musik Karlsruhe, and in the United States, at the University of Michigan. She has also taken part in prestigious conducting masterclasses such as the Italian Opera Academy with Riccardo Muti, and Conductors’ Academy of the Tonhalle Zürich, under the guidance of Paavo Järvi.
She has conducted many orchestras in Europe, including the Baden-Baden Philharmonie, Stuttgarter Philharmoniker, Württembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen, Philharmonisches Kammerorchester Dresden and the Orchestra da Camera del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.
