Large natural landscapes, safaris and excursions have characterized her childhood, spent in Kenya, where, very young, she moved with her parents. After giving up professional tennis ideas, she has focused on golfing, following her father’s advice, also to use golf as a social platform. When she was 16 she moved to the United States to study and pursue her sporting career on golf courses. In 2012 she turned professional and immediately showed her skills on the 2013 Symetra Tour, where she finished second and was appointed ” Rookie of the year “. She continued her rise on the LPGA, being able to rely on an outstanding regularity in tournament rankings that allowed her to become an established professional. Her improvement on the golf course lead her to become Italy’s N.1 female golfer in 2016 at the Olympics in Rio where she finished T53. In addition to playing golf she is passionately dedicated to photography and kite surfing and still maintains a strong link with Africa and its nature.
