Born in Arbus in Sardinia, Maria Lisa has several years of experience as an administrative manager and accounting consultant. Her professional experience includes important business groups, such as Cagliari Calcio, the publishing group L'Unione Sarda and renowned business consulting firms. She is very attached to her homeland and loves travelling in nature and practising outdoor sports such as trekking, climbing and canoeing, but, above all, scuba diving, to the point that she has an international advanced AOWD+Nitrox diving certification and, when she can, she dives in oceans all over the world. She joined Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli in 2023 and is excited to participate in her first America's Cup.
