More about Michela

Michela grew up in southern Italian speaking Switzerland, traveled around the world and also graduated in Bologna in Arts, Music and Theatre, then started her journey into cultural management, before moving the the US with her husband and daughter.

Michela è crescita nella Svizzera italiana, ha viaggiato e si è laureata all’università di Bologna in Discipline delle Arti, della Musica e dello Spettacolo (DAMS). Ha inoltre intrapreso un corso in Cultural Management, prima di trasferirsi in USA con suo marito e sua figlia.

As a cultural promoter she feels almost obliged to keep her origins, her language and her culture alive, hoping that this passion can be happily shared through the Italian Literary Group.

Come promotrice culturale si sente quasi in obbligo di mantenere viva le sue origini, la sua lingua e la sua cultura, e spera tanto che questa passione si possa condividere in armonia e tramite il piacere della lettura di gruppo, o i cosiddetti Incontri Letterari.
