So she decided to devote herself in every moment to protect our Earth “borrowed from our children.” When she does not travel, she is in a woodland 15 km from Parma in an ecological home where she lives with her family and she works on her projects: journalism (she has been enrolled since 1991), (an online and offline press office), Ecobnb, “Il Richiamo del Bosco” eco-bnb and other green ideas.
