Victoria Offredi Poletto
Victoria Offredi Poletto was born and raised in England and Italy of Italian parents and has resided in the USA for the past thirty years. She has always been involved in the multicultural experience: from directing her own English- language school, to teaching French, Italian and English in many parts of the world since 1968. In 2007 she retired from active teaching in order to dedicate more time to translating the increasing number of works by immigrant women to Italy who give us new understanding not only of what it means to be writing in Italian in the twenty-first century, but who deliver a message that profoundly resonates with immigrants all over the world. Gabriella Ghermandi is one such writer.
