Federica Musolino is 22 and has led a difficult life, She lost her mother when she was very young, and, as the oldest of three sisters, had to leave art school, which she really loved. From Rome, where she was born, she moved to Siena. It was there that, almost by chance, she found her dream job that now makes her eyes light up and puts a smile on her face.

It was an acrobatic dream, “I always saw the people from EdiliziAcrobatica working on monuments in the city, lowering themselves from heights by ropes. They were doing what I would have liked to do, restoring architectural works and buildings whilst suspended in the air. I would see them and think that there was no space for women there, but actually…”
Actually there was, because after 22 years of determination to achieve her goals, Federica is now the first Wall (Wo)man in Italy, the first female rope-access operator in the country.
