Valentina Vezzali is impressively living her truth in many different ways, so we were inspired to include her in our Noble Women campaign. She is Italy's most decorated female athlete of all time. She is also the first fencer in Olympic history to have won gold medals at three consecutive Olympics. As a politician she has campaigned on sport, physical education and women rights and was noted for branching away from her political party when it formed a coalition with Berlusconi, in order to not compromise her work on woman’s rights. She is also a mother of two sons.
