She won 10 Italian titles, but the highlights of her career were winning the 1997 World Championship, and European Championships in both 1990 and 1998 in the 10 km, adding a silver medal in the 1994 Europeans. She competed at three Olympics (1992-2000), with a best finish of seventh in 1992. Her other major titles included the 1994 European Indoors over 3 km, the 1995 Universiade and 1996 European Cup in the 10 km.
