Federica describes herself has:“I have always been a particularly analytical person who uses the infinite
sphere of emotions to find new questions and new answers. I consider myself very sensitive, the human side is
what characterizes and interests me the most. I always try to take those qualities and express it through the
physicality of my movement language. Dance Improvisation is the tool I prefer the most to investigate, to
understand, to tune in, to feel and play”
