Other information TRAINING IN FRANCE
She moved to France to train with Daniel Levavasseur in around 2017, before joining the Paris University Club. In 2020 she joined Benoit Janvier's training academy in Saint-Gratien. "Training in France has changed me a lot. I feel better both technically and physically, and I have more confidence in myself. Since I started fencing in Udine [Italy] I have always practised the French style. When I went to a club in Milan [Italy], I had a hard time adapting to Italian fencing. When I saw the opportunity to refine my technique in France itself, I did not think twice." (actu.fr, 30 May 2021, 19 Mar 2020; Federazione Italiana Scherma, 28 May 2021)
