Place of Birth: Trieste

m. 1,77

kg. 68

Speciality 49er FX


This sailor from Trieste has the wind in her sails and, together with Giulia Conti, she appears at her second Olympic Games showing off a European and a World title. With a smile, and an inexhaustible supply of positivity, this team member has always managed to overcome the most difficult moments. Passionate about sport (cycling and swimming in particular), she likes to relax by reading and listening to music. However, she appears in Rio with the objective of writing some triumphant new pages for the book of Italian sports history. After winning the World Championship title seven years after Alessandra Sensini, the 28-year-old will attempt a challenge only ever achieved 63 years ago by Agostino Straulino and Nico Rode. Francesca is looking forward to celebrating with red wine and samba.
