Who am I?
Antonella Barberini was born in Rimini, Italy, in 1974. After a career in tourism and software technology services, she wanted more than “paying the bills” routine and left for a life-changing trip to Patagonia. A romantic tide led her to Paris, France, in 2007, where she learnt how to start all over again in a foreign Country, which she initially felt as hostile. Her job career as a tourist assistant brought her into contact with many cultures; today she can speak five languages. In short: in 2000s, she mentored teenage poets in the high schools, she wrote articles for a local magazine about identity, and she was active as organizer of cultural events, where she met members of the Indian Blood/Blackfoot tribes, with whom she established a friendship and also supported the project of a private study center in Carpi, with ethnologist Carla Fornasari adopted name Red Eagle Woman, by Amazonian and Apache tribes. From 1999 to 2009, she drove to the Cheyenne Lakota Indian Reservations of South Dakota, as well as great outdoors in Canada, Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. She endured the Camino to Santiago de Compostela cycling in mountain bike. Since then, she lives in retreat in Briard, where she works for a famous global tourism and entertainment company. She took classes in mind management, and relaxation techniques, at the Sophrology Institute in Paris, following exceptional events, which forced her to take over her mental and physical health, embracing Mindfulness and the gift of her Creativity.
She is now working at the english translation of her last work; a self-help manual on PTSD, art therapy and her talks about coping skills with veterans.
