Stefano Duranti Poccetti – Corriere dello spettacolo, 28 gennaio 2012,
“Low lights, a woman in half darkness, in a monumental posture; she seems the “Discobolo of Mirone”. She remains minutes in the posture; she wants to be watched and she wants to recover and reveal the sacred value of Art: Art is sacred and has to be admired.
It is the dance of the psyche, of the soul, the one we admire for 15 minutes on stage, on the music of composers Andy Moor and Yannis Kyriakides. A dance in which the spirit is very well performed by the dancer who moves with grace, delicacy and solemnity.”

“Valentina Campora gamely performed a solo dance piece, which was choreographed by Gabriella Maiorino to subtly dramatic music (…) by Andy Moor and Yannis Kyriakides. Beginning in silence, standing straight, back turned to the audience, Campora slowly turned her upper torso in a tight spiral that put her sturdy musculature under pressure which she relieved through a graceful, lissom uncoiling, translating the tension thus relieved in increasingly forcefully energetic and expressive movement. She ended with an incursion into the audience, settling with the music’s diminution into a tense state of stillness, provocatively presenting her tongue in apparent defiance of any perceived vulnerability.”
