RAISING AWARENESS
She would like to raise the profile of open water swimming in Italy. "Our sport is little-known, even though we are among the strongest nations in the world. It is a pity that in Italy there is no prominence because it is beautiful and it is very well known especially in the rest of the world, almost like cycling. It is strange to have this popularity in Trentino [Italy] because doing the 25km of swimming does not seem possible in an area without sea." (lavocedeltrentino.it, 24 Aug 2018)
