Ilaria was born on February 7th (Aquarius) and is 24 years-old. She lives in Rome and has a lively and extrovert character, very talkative indeed. She has a degree in International languages (English, Spanish and Russian) and she attended many specialization courses abroad. As she loves nature and travels, she would like to become a professional documentarist. Green and purple are her favorite colors. While “Under the Bridge” by Red Hot Chili Peppers is her favorite song. “Return to Oz” and “Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory” have sensibly marked her childhood, while she now favors a “Fantasy” living style. Impressionism and the Liberty style are her favorite artistic trends. Her grandmother was the driving force behind Ilaria’s application for Donnavventura, since 2005. She applied also in 2007 and then in 2008 she was eventually selected! Needless to say, she never expected to be selected for this year’s expedition as well! She is now ready and eager to join the team anywhere in the world! Ilaria thinks that Donnavventura will definitely help her challenge and overtake her own limits, while proving a highly educational experience. Ilaria has previously traveled in Europe, Mexico and in the US.
