The person behind Wordsoming is me, Federica Palazzi!

If there's a common thread in my life, that has to be the power of the arts and the stories. Since I was very young, I have studied and researched in order to understand how this power (through literature, music and dance) is inextricably linked to being human and how vital it is for our life.

What I was doing wasn't always clear to me...quite the opposite, to be honest! I have a restless mind and I always question everything, so I wondered for a long time where I was going with all my studies and experiences. I was looking for a "crossroads". I found it when I started to dedicate myself to other people: I observed, listened, with wide eyes and open ears, other people's stories. Working for the others, discovering the right paths to personal and collective wellbeing together, helped me find that crossroads I was so desperately looking for.

On that crossroads now stands Wordsoming, my Body-Narrative Practice project: between words and the body (soma). Here I share the transformative power of the arts so that as many people as possible can integrate it into their lives, I create labs and workshops and collaborate with schools, institutions, professionals. I'd love to have you on board!
