Irene Panighetti was born in Brescia in 1976, but with Palestine and Naples in her heart; she has a double, or perhaps triple, training, not to mention the personality, at least ... multifaceted! Linguistic-literary university studies lead her to graduation and doctorate, strictly in public universities and under ... the former system. Passions and ways of life lead her both to journalism, meaning for her mostly knowledge and sharing, as well as acting politically (among her top masters, the unrivaled reporter Ryszard Kapuściński), as well as international cooperation studies; both pathways that do not give her a profitable job but unique and irreplaceable experiences. She is a passionate reader and never has enough; she loves narrative, especially Italian and French, but is open and curious about every literary attempt: because of this she supports anyone who goes into the adventure of writing, without however avoiding a rigorous and often stinging judgment, when it seems to her that the foundations and the talent - needed for the commitment and the fatigue to give birth to a literary work - are lacking. But she is more strict with herself than with other people, and she is actually less tough than ... how people sketch her.
