Born on the first day of autumn 1988, under the sign of Libra (cusp with Virgo), surrounded by the sea in the south of Italy, in the shadow of a burning sun and swept by violent winds.
Created in the image of God, and therefore free by nature, I was nevertheless a slave to violence and selfishness, just like the world in which I was born.
A world full of men and women like me, who loved Life and also hated it, and who, born to love it, lived in fear in despair of contradictory appetites.
Marianna is in the world but not of the world, not because Marianna is a saint but for another reason: because she is an artist.
The integrity of the artist raises man above the level of the world without freeing him from it.
Until the age of nineteen, Marianna learned to make excellent coffee and cappuccinos.
One day, she packed her bags to travel the world, and discovered circus! Until this time she had no prior circus training, she had never hula hooped, or even done gymnastics. Despite this total lack of circus skills, she had the opportunity to hula hoop with a friend; Silvia Pavone. With her she learn to hula hoop in Italy for the first time, but this was for fun and not in a traditional circus. Marianna started to play with the hula hoop. Later she played with this circular object in various performances on open stages, and found that it helped her to release repressed anger.
She decide to study something beyond the techniques learned from the hula hoop videos she had seen.
She went on to study at "FLIC" circus school in Italy, and later in the school of circus "LE LIDO" in France. Having started this skill just for fun, she now works using her own personal style, where the simple turn of hula hoop, is sometimes forgotten in the corner of her brain.
