SILVIA GOTTARDI

Basketball player, filmaker and addicted traveller

I’m an ex professional basketball player – Italian Champion and Italian Super Cup Champion in 2000, English Champion in 2005 – and ex player of the Italian National Team. In 2012 I took part in the Harlem Globetrotters Itlian Tour and became the first woman to play against the world’s most famous basketball team.

Graduated in Sports Marketing at the Catholic University of Milan, with a Master in Marketing Management at MMU Manchester (UK), after several important experiences in marketing & sales both in Italy and in the UK, I founded in 2007 TOP1, a Communication and Event Organisation Agency based in Milan.

I’ve been the creator of the travel charity project “DAV-Donne al Volante”, supported from Italian number one paper Gazzetta dello Sport. I was in charge of the organization of the expeditions, photo & video and I writed the travel blog on the site Gazzetta.it.

From September 2014 I have my own basketball & travel blog #shegotgame

As an expert of communication and PR, I love both to be in front and behind the cameras, and over the years I have improved my documentary filmaking skills by attending several classes and workshops: New York Film Academy (NY) – EICTV (Cuba) – Mohole (I) – Italian Institute of Photography (I). My first documentary “She Got Game” won the prestigious Guirlande D’Honneur at FICTS International Film Festival 2015.

I live in Milan and I deal with communication, events and videomaking… Of course I still play basketball! Cycling lover.
