Francesca is a native Italian. She moved from Rome to Vienna, Austria at the age of six. She completed German and Romance Studies with a Master's degree at the University of Vienna, where she later worked as an academic researcher with a special focus on German literature of the 17th century. For 12 years, Francesca headed one of the Wiener Volkshochschulen -- a renowned adult education center in Vienna.
