Born and bre(a)d in Sicily, Valentina cannot remember a time when she wasn’t trying to learn some foreign language. After earning her MA from the University of Catania, she studied and traveled a bit around the Mediterranean Sea, more and more falling in love with Semitic languages. Valentina loves water in all its shapes, especially when it’s big, blue and you can swim in it. A day in the outdoors, with good food and a good book, is what she calls a perfect day.
