Born in the city of Bern (CH) Anna Pieri Zuercher grew up in a multicultural family, with an Italian mother and a Swiss German father. Actress and pianist by profession, she switches back and forth between film, television, theatre and music. She is fluent and performs in French, Italian and German, and that's one of the reasons for her successful international career.
