Who is Letizia Accinelli?
I was born in Bologna, where I graduated in Foreign Languages. I then moved to Scotland for Postgraduate Studies on Scottish Women’s Literature, for which I received a Master of Letters (M.Litt). Subsequently I moved to Germany, where I taught Italian in a bilingual school. I lived in Hamburg till 2005 and moved back to Italy. I have been living in Italy since then. Traveling, languages, teaching, sports and movement in general are my great passions. I have always practised movement since I was very young. Movement and nature were key values in my family. I particularly loved all kinds of water sport and swimming has always been my passion. It gave me a sense of freedom, of oneness. I felt I was one with the water. I could feel my whole body: it made me happy, light, strong, powerful and kept me curious about my potential. I felt I was born to be in the water and water was an essential element in my life!
