Growing up speaking French, Italian and English, Rosselli was, from her childhood on, multilingual, which would highly influence the syntactical complexity of her poetry. The second determining factor of her life was the murder of her father, the anti-Fascist martyr Carlo Rosselli, and his brother - both brutally killed by order of Mussolini. This event and its aftermath would have a lasting effect on her mental health. Much of her life was spent in therapy, and in 1996 she leaped from her high-rise apartment to her death.
