“I dance, naked like the truth.” is the courageous, honest and provocative autobiographical account of the life of an internationally renowned artist of Italian culture and dance.
A fully free, non-conformist rebellious woman.
A passionate journey of the soul in the body, in the act of creation and the discovery of Eros, in which Patrizia Cerroni lays herself bare, revealing her most intimate secrets and her love stories.

A gripping read, crisp, clear writing.

The story winds around the world during her numerous international tours, focusing on Rome, New York and India, where she lived for a long time, and on her memorable meetings and collaborations from the 1970s to today with artists such as Charlie Mingus, Zakir Hussain, Giacinto Scelsi, Mario Schifano, David and Dory Zard, Michelangelo Antonioni and Fabio Mauri.

In making the reader participate in EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), the therapeutic tool she practices, the author offers many effective keys to access creative fullness and conveys the awareness that we are the true authors of our lives through the most difficult of conquests , that of being able to love ourselves.

  • Dance Naked Like Truth is a bold, honest and provacative look at life, love and the act of creation from a world-class artist. Patrizia's journey through dance, spiritual awakening and even EFT offers many great lessons on how to live an authentic and fulfilling life.

  • Patrizia makes us understand how the tiny ego of the individual can penetrate and make us nourish ourselves with the infinite, making us perceive its horrid strength capable of exposing human fragility
    Pietro Vitelli
  • Love. Art. Sensuality. Eroticism. Travel. Courage. Compassion. Integrity. Adventure. Healing. Inculturation. Spirituality. And Ongoing Inspiration! Dance Naked is both captivating, and simultaneously liberating! Patrizia’s courage and raw, honest authenticity moved me emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and artistically!
  • … the text exudes joy of living and pride… a life totally dedicated to art to the point of becoming the very reason for one's being… she is a dancer, choreographer and recorder of the highest level and formidable experience, but also a shaman…
