Carla Fracci - Biennale

Carla Fracci began studying at the age of ten at the La Scala Theatre Ballet School in Milan. Two years after graduating, she became a soloist and then a prima ballerina.

On the occasion of the first Florence Biennale, she was present as patroness of honour and received the "Lorenzo il Magnifico" Prize of the City of Florence.

Her talent has led her to tread the world's most famous stages and to be part of some of the most renowned foreign companies such as the London Festival Ballet, the Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet, the Stuttgart Ballet, the Royal Swedish Ballet and the American Ballet Theatre.

Carla Fracci is best known for her intense and emotional interpretations of romantic and dramatic roles such as Giselle, La Sylphide, Giulietta, Swanilda and Francesca da Rimini. At the end of the 1980s she directed the corps de ballet of the Teatro San Carlo in Naples and later the Arena di Verona and the Teatro dell'Opera in Rome.
