Traci Andrighetti holds both a B.A. and an M.A. from the University of Texas at Austin, where she is a lecturer in Italian. In 2001, she was awarded a fellowship from the American Literary Translators Association for Delictum, her translation from the Italian of Dacia Maraini's one-act play Delitto. That same year her translations of the poetry of Christina Rossetti appeared in the Penguin Classic Christina Rossetti: The Complete Poems. In the fall of 2003, she published an excerpt of Ada Gobetti's Diary of a Partisan in Thresholds: An Anthology of World Literature from the Heart of Texas, which was selected as a finalist for the 2003 Translation Award of the Texas Institute of Letters. She is translating a book of Dacia Maraini's theater for publication by Guernica Editions in 2005.
