The extended family was living in exile in France in 1937, then moved between England and the United States, where Rosselli was educated. She continued to speak Italian with her grandmother, Amelia Pincherle Rosselli, a Venetian Jewish feminist, playwright, and translator. Rosselli returned to Italy in 1949, eventually settling in Rome. She spent her life studying composition, music, and ethnomusicology and taking part in the cultural life of postwar Italy as a poet and literary translator. Her literary output includes verse and prose in English and French as well as Italian. She committed suicide in 1996)

The family settled in Larchmont, New York. Amelia attended Mamaroneck's Public School where she graduated in 1945. The Rossellis returned to Italy in 1946, but soon after, Marion and the children went to London, where Amelia attended one more year of high school required to access to university in Europe. In England, she also studied piano, violin and composition. Back in Rome, she worked on her poetry, and lived by translating from English and French until the publication in 1964 of her first book of poems, Variazioni belliche. While her main focus was poetry, Rosselli had a keen interest in music theory) - https://primolevicenter.org/printed-matter/on-amelia-rosselli/
