Orthopedic Surgeon, Professor of Human Anatomy at the University of Padova. Founder Member of the Fascial Manipulation Association and of the Fascial Research Society. Member of the Italian Society of Anatomy and Histology, of the European Association of Clinical Anatomy and of the International Academy of Manual Musculoskeletal Medicine. Scientific activity devoted to the study of the anatomy of the human fasciae from a macroscopical, histological and physio-pathological point of view.

She personally made over 100 cadaver dissections for research. From 2000 she organizes and personally holds theoretical-practical courses about the Fascial Manipulation technique both in Italy and in other countries. Author of more than 100 in extenso papers about the fascial anatomy. Author of two books about the Fascial Manipulation (Piccin ed), translated in 8 languages, and of some chapters about the fascial anatomy or the Fascial Manipulation Technique. Author of the first photographic atlas about fasciae: “Functional atlas of human fasciae” (2015, Elsevier ed.). 
Fascial Anatomy and Manipulation
October 31 - November 1
This workshop will illustrate new studies of the gross and histological anatomy of the human fasciae, and explain the biomechanical model for the human fascial system currently applied in the manual technique known as Fascial Manipulation©. The model represents a three dimensional interpretation of the fascial system. Its hypothetical foundations are fruit of more than thirty years of analysis of anatomical texts and clinical practice. More recently, dissections of un-embalmed bodies have provided anatomical verification of numerous hypotheses including the fascial continuity between different body segments via myotendinous expansions and the possible distribution of tensional forces. This workshop will also propose new studies concerning the histological characteristics of superficial and deep fasciae (fibre content, structural conformation, and innervation) and debate the role of deep fascia in proprioception.

The Fascial Manipulation© technique is based on the concept of myofascial units (mf units) united in myofascial sequences, and involves manual friction over specific points (called Centres of coordination and Centres of fusion) on the deep muscular fascia. This underlying rationale and the resultant analytical process guides the therapist in the combination of points to be treated and allows therapists to work at a distance from the site of pain, which is often inflamed due to non-physiological tension. Musculoskeletal disorders commonly treated include low back pain; tendinitis, sprains, peripheral nerve compressions, and neck pain syndromes, whereas visceral dysfunctions can include gastritis, irritable colon syndrome, constipation, and dysmenorrhoea.
