Amelia moved to Berlin in 1988, and a few months before the fall of the Berlin Wall she gave birth to her daughter, Lia Nadine, who has Down syndrome. That was a turning point in her life: after many attempts at moving back to Italy she decided to stay in Berlin, and she started her fight for inclusion for her daughter in the scholastic and working environment. Before moving to Berlin Amelia worked in Rome in theatrical projects for kids (“Il Gruppo del Sole” that organized, among other activities, summer camps in collaboration with the City of Rome). Subsequently she became a member of the directing board of the Arci Donna Nazionale, promoting many cultural and political projects involving women on the whole national territory. During his work with this association Amelia founded the first Centro Baby Sitter, that brought together families and babysitters while recognizing the qualifications of these professionals.
