Who am I

With a diploma at the Luinguistic Highschool and a degree in Physiotherapy from the University of Genoa, I am now a professional physiotherapist. I was born and raised in Camogli (daughter of Angelo, Daniele’s sister): since I was a child my dad has approached me to kayaking, mean that I learned to use to experience new adventures exploring the environment that surrounds me (especially the marine protected area of Portofino’s park!). I love anything related to movement and outdoor sports; I am excited to be able to share and pass on the passion for my territory, helping people to enjoy all its beauty both above and below the surface!

My successes? Being able over time to juggle and devote myself with passion to my various interests! I played water polo for 12 years and played in the top series, in 2013 I won with Rapallo Waterpolo Team the National Championship and under 19. I dedicated myself to discovering various outdoor sports including kayaking, paddle boarding, freediving and rock climbing, developing a passion both for the movement of the body itself and for the exploration of nature. Today I have made my passions a profession and I divide my working life between Outdoor Portofino and my career as a physiotherapist in the neuromotor field.

“Sono appassionata di tutto ciò che riguarda il movimento e lo sport all’aria aperta!”

How did you join OP?

I was in the last year of high school when I met Luca and his project which was then called Kayaktramp. Thanks to the first small collaborations, I got closer and closer to the wonders that our territory offers.

Your greatest passions?

Movement (professional deformation) understood in its entirety as an exploration of the surrounding world. The sea and any activity that allows you to experience it in all its facets. I keep the third passion for “free”: depending on the period it spaces between music, cooking, climbing … and the list is constantly updated!

Your favourite place in Liguria?

Very difficult. I leave out the Marine Protected Area and the Portofino Park: these have been like a wonderful playground in the backyard! I would say the area around Portovenere that seems coming out straight from a fairy tale, with its caves, islands, high cliffs and stairways overlooking the sea.

Three favourite dishes in your kitchen?

A çimma (typical ligurian dish) Ravioli au tuccu (Ravioli with sauce) Caponadda (exact caponadda not caponata, it’s not a typing error!)

Three values that best represent you?

Health, Family, Love.
