Chiara Forlani was born in Bergamo (Italy) in 1992. She is a literary translator, mainly working from English and French into Italian. Her life, studies and work are divided between Provence and the Po Valley. She enjoys reading novels, short stories, articles, tagged walls, crumpled shopping lists, cereal boxes and the newspaper of those who sit next to her on the underground. Translating has made her posture poor and her life better.
