Federica has been studying Chinese at university level for five years, first at the Catholic University of Milan (BA Languages and International Relations) and then at the University of Edinburgh (MA Chinese Studies). While completing her undergraduate studies in Milan, Federica volunteered to teach Chinese to Italian primary school pupils working alongside native Chinese teachers at a local private school for two years. This experience made her passionate about Chinese language teaching and motivated her to improve her Chinese by studying in China.

In September 2016 Federica moved to Tianjin to undertake the Chinese-taught Master of Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages (MTCSOL) at Nankai University on a two-year Confucius Institute scholarship. This programme gave her the chance to come back to Edinburgh for a one-semester Chinese teaching internship at the Confucius Institute for Scotland.
