Linda M. Somma
Founder / Director
A professional with 25+ years of experience in the promotion & management of artistic and cultural projects in the entertainment industry, Linda was born and educated in the USA, has a BA in International PR, with a concentration in languages (Italian & Spanish, et un petit peu de français!).
Throughout her career, she has collaborated on a wide range of projects, beginning her professional career doing communication & marketing in an artistic field.
In 1992 she decided to make a change, cross an ocean & move to Italy, and found herself in design/fashion central Milano! Immediately, she began collaborating with several professional design studios. She also dabbled a bit in teaching a “Professional Organization” course at several design schools in Milano + Roma.
In 1999, approaching the new millennium, time for a move again: next destination, her beloved Roma! There, a brief stint in the corporate world & in 2002 she began collaborating in the entertainment industry with her first gig as a talent agent! Ironic – the consultancy – followed in 2003, where the desire and need for a “consultancy” arose. In addition Linda does professional translations, with her specialty being screenplays (Italian – English) as well as interpreting.
In 2008, she returned to the US, and in 2010 she opened up Ironic Music Booking Agency, a new branch of Ironic!
Her native language is English and she speaks fluent Italian, very good Spanish and conversational French. She has dual citizenship as well (USA + Italy/EU). firstname.lastname@example.org

Angelina Ford was born and raised in Massachusetts before moving to Florida for college. She is currently going into her sophomore year at the University of Tampa pursuing a double major in music and business management. Music has been a part of Angelina’s life since she was a child; her main instrument is voice, but she also plays the piano and saxophone. In high school she began writing her own music along with being a part of the musical theater program at her school. She continued this until college, where she originally began studying music education. However, she decided that was not the path she wanted to take in her career so she switched to a double major in music and business. She continues to write her own music while pursuing a career in the music industry through her studies at college and at her internship at Ironic. She can be reached at: email@example.com.
Ironic is always seeking interns to fill various roles within the agency.
