Nicknamed “The Butterfly of Orzinuovi” and “The Cannibal”.
A strong personality and determination.
The very first Italian to win the World Championships in her field: the artistic gymnastics.
In 2006 she became a public figure: in fact, she was able to have an avant-garde sports complex built in Brescia, where a lot of athletes of our national team train nowadays.
Even though she injured a lot of times, she never gave up and she always fought to do better.
Gymnastics are made of privations, it is a sport in which you work hard on your own, the trainings are arduous and the trainers are tough and never satisfied.
Training for a competition is like climbing a mountain and you can lose it in a second: a mistake, an injury, the jury. You need determination and strictness, gymnastics are not a crush.
And Vanessa is an example of that.
