Place of Birth: Irvine, North Ayrshire, Scotland
Date of Birth: 20 July, 1987
Nicola Benedetti is a Scottish classical solo violinist and festival director. Her parents, Francesca and Giovanni, are Italian. Her father is from Barga, Province of Lucca, Tuscany. Her maternal grandparents are from Udine, Friuli Venezia-Giulia, Italy.
She has said:
My mum and dad were both born in Italy and I had been distanced from that because I was born in Scotland… My dad grew up in a tiny, tiny village that only had a few hours of sunlight everyday, so he came to Scotland to start a new life… As such, his Italian upbringing was not really enforced upon my sister and me. Mum and Dad were quite happy to be living in Scotland and be Scottish.
Aren’t you tired of spreading lies? She’s from Scotland. She’s not American. She’s British. So yes she is European. And if she looks Hispanic that proves only that Italians look like that. My grammar is impeccable you —–. Don’t even try
Ok, honestly I won’t respond to any of your comments anymore. If you even spread lies when it says clearly on this website that this girl is from Scotland and lives and grew up in the UK, what are we even talking about? You’re nuts!!!! Next thing you’re going to say is that if I drink rat poison I won’t actually die but grow a couple of wings and fly like Superman?? I’m done with you. Enjoy the asylum. I hope you will get banned from this website very soon and I hope I will never bump to you in real life. I’m a very well behaved person, but for you I’d be more than happy to make an exception and show you how “us” muricans deal in real life with beings like yourself
There you go another Italian from the North that doesn’t look like a typical white girl
Born in Scotland. Tuscany is considered Central Italy.
I think if you look for Italian girls who look like “typical white girls” you may be disappointed. Btw I’ve never heard an Italian girl carrying a male name as Nicola.
Disappointed from what?
