Cristina was appointed to the Board of Dystonia Europe in 2016. She is a pianist and deputy Director of the Milan Conservatory. She has won many international competitions and played hundreds of concerts including orchestral recitals radio and television recordings. Since 2005 Cristina has been suffering from focal dystonia which forced her to stop her concert activities. After being treated in Hannover, Germany, she is now almost completely recovered. She therefore is devoting her focus on pianophysiology.
