Anna was born in 1976 in Pordenone and now lives in Bassano del Grappa. She is currently a free-lance journalist and an intercultural mediator. Previously, she lived in Venice for more than ten years, where she graduated in theoretical philosophy at the University of Cà Foscari. Her thesis about Nietzsche was entitled Violence and Creativity. During her studies, from 2000 to 2004, she worked as assistant artist at the Biennale di Venezia D.M.T. (Dance, Music, Theatre), with a particular responsibility for liaising with visiting artists. Her responsibilities included translation, organising locations for performances and interviews, and managing relationships with local journalists and creative personnel. From 2003 to 2006, she also worked as official assistant to the International Jury which awarded the Leoni d’Oro at the Biennale di Venezia Arte e Architettura, in which capacity she observed all the phases of discussion leading up to the awards. In Venice she began a long-lasting involvement with experimental theatre, which she has pursued in many theatrical workshops. From 2000 to 2007, she collaborated in several performances directed by the Italian artists Giuliano Vasilicò, Ascanio Celestini, Serena Sinigaglia, Pippo Delbono and the Canadian Ken Gass. She also worked in Pistoia for two years with the artistic group formed by the musician Piero Corso, the artist Zoe Gruni and the actress Tania Garribba. She writes journalism for several different publications with diverse audiences. For example, since 2005, she has contributed monthly articles to the cultural magazine Venezia News, including interviews with artists and regular reviews of art exhibitions. She also writes for the cultural magazine Finnegans. Working in collaboration with a graphic designer, she edited Album Groggia (2007), a catalogue dedicated to the previous seven years of activity by the theatre Teatrino Groggia, in Venice.
She recently obtained a Masters degree in Intercultural Studies from the University of Padua. She recently worked in Bassano as a translator and advocate for recent immigrants to Italy. Currently she handles communications for a non-profit association. Her short story "In viaggio verso dove" about migration and friendship has recently been published by Tracciati Editori in the collection Tre d’amore (2014). She reports and writes in ABCDance.eu.
