Studies and early life

Camiciotti's studies were founded in the Classics. She attended Silvio d’Amico Academy of Dramatic Arts (Silvio d’Amico Accademia d’Arte Drammatica) under the guidance of late director Orazio Costa. She graduated with a degree in Journalism from the University of Urbino, where she attended the school of literary and aesthetic criticism of the late great humanist Carlo Bo. She became a teacher of Aesthetics at the Sharoff-Staniwslawskji Theater Academy in Rome, Italy.

Camiciotti met her late husband, Claudio Battistich, in Florence, Italy, where she was his assistant as Director of the Center for Oriental Studies.

Camiciotti is an Executive Advisor and President of the Camerata dei Poeti, the city of Florence's Chamber of poetry in the tradition of the Florentine Camerata, and on the Board of Advisors of Modigliani of Scandicci.[1][2][3] Her five poetry collections have won cultural prizes.[4] Her work has been reviewed by leading Italian newspapers such as La Nazione, Il Giornale, the Corriere di Firenze, and Poesia.

A resident of Florence, Italy, her poetry has been presented in readings with contemporaries Alda Merini, Maria Luisa Spaziani, and Mario Luzi, and she traveled to Moscow, Russia for cultural literary events with Russian poet Eugene Evtushenko in association with Russia's Minister of Foreign Culture.
