Silvia Licciardello Millepied the day of her graduation at La Sapienza University of Rome, in Italy.


Silvia L. Millepied was born on April 8 1981 at Garibaldi General Hospital in Teramo, and grew up in Castelli, near Teramo (TE) and Belpasso (CT) in Italy.

Her father, Concetto, is a sculptor and former art teacher, and her mother, Antonina, works as secretary at school.  Silvia L. Millepied also has three younger sister, Daniela, Sonia and Gisella.

The young Silvia grew up surrounded by books, music and artcrafts.

Silvia wanted to be a performer ans a writer from an early age. 

She was very much attracted by words, and wrote her first song at the age of six - a piano song about the sea - followed by many songs she performed also at school.

She wrote her first play at just eleven – a play based on the ancient Greek religion, performed with her sisters. She had her own theater at home, and her sisters were very pleased to be part of the "company". Silvia started a novel, never finished, in which a teenage girl is diagnosed with cancer, and writes a diary in order to keep herself alive. 

In the summer of the next year she performed at school as lead singer and made an adaptation of the german fairy tale "Snow-White and Rose-Red", collected by Brothers Grimm, always with her sisters. 

In 1991, moved by the violence of the Yugoslav Wars, Silvia wrote "Jugoslavia," a song dedicated to Pope John Paul II. The song was one of the finalists at Castrocaro Music Festival, in 1995. Two years later Silvia L. Millepied was awarded the first prize at Lennon Festival, with the song "Diversa."

Silvia also wrote poetry, but most of the poems were adapted to be performed as songs. She started a collaboration with other young musicians and they performed also with Audio Due, and won a rock contest in Turin called "Pagella Rock". They recorded an EP, but never signed a contract; Silvia was the only one with a formal registration at the SIAE, the Italian copyright collecting agency. 

Silvia studied at Alma Mater Studiorum of Bologna, La Sapienza University of Rome and HarvardX. Also she lived various years in Milan, one year in London (UK), and in 2015 followed Benjamin Millepied in Paris.

In 2014 Silvia founded RSMediaItalia, her own publishing house, along with a literary magazine called "Astrid Magazine," in honour of HRH Princess Astrid of Belgium.
