Closing Encounter with Serena Dandini

Serena Dandini

Serena Dandini, born in Rome in 1954 is a television presenter/host. She studied at the Giulio Cesarei liceo in Rome, and was part of the youth protest and feminist activism movement generation. She began working in radio for RAI at an early age, as a music programmer and then created her own programmes. When she moved into television she became one of the top presenter/hosts at Raitre. Her show Tv delle ragazze which she wrote and presented, enabled her to get to know many outstanding actresses. Since then she has been an almost constant presence on TV. She has recently published a couple of books: Dai diamanti non nasce niente. Storie di vita e di giardini (2011) and Grazie per quella volta. Confessioni di una donna difettosa (2012). In addition she has directed her first stage production, Ferite a morte, a powerful work based on real incidents of violence against women. It was performed at the United Nations’ International “End Violence to Women Day” on November 25, 2013.
