Nació en Genova, sindo adolescente se mudó con su familia a Torino donde estudia en el Liceo Massimo D'Azeglio.

A lo largo de su vida profesional contribuyó a la difusión de los más importantes escritores norteamericanos en Italia, desde los grandes íconos de los alocados años veinte, como F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker y William Faulkner, pasando por los escritores de la década de 1960 (Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Gregory Corso, Lawrence Ferlinghetti), hasta los jóvenes escritores de décadas recientes incluidos Jay McInerney, Bret Easton Ellis, David Foster Wallace, Chuck Palahniuk y Jonathan Safran Foer. Pivano también se interesó en la cultura afroamericana, por ejemplo publicó muchas versiones italianas de los libros de Richard Wright. En 1980 y nuevamente en 1984 Pivano entrevista a Charles Bukowski en su hogar en San Pedro, California. Estas entrevistas le sirvieron luego de base para el libro, "Charles Bukowski, Laughing with the Gods" que publica en el 2000. En el verano del 2001 recorre Estados Unidos para filmar el documental A Farewell to Beat, escrito por Andrea Bempensante y dirigido por Luca Facchini. La película es una celebración de la Generación Beat con entrevistas a destacados escritores norteamericanos, incluidos Jay McInerney, Bret Easton Ellis y Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Pivano también escribió sobre música popular y era una admiradora de Fabrizio de André y Bob Dylan. En el 2006 Pivano decide relatar nuevamente la Spoon River Anthology en el libro "Spoon River, ciao" (Dreams Creek, 2006), donde textos inéditos describen las fotografías tomadas por William Willinghton en los sitios descritos por Edgar Lee Masters en su Antología.

In 1943 her first translation, part of the Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters, was published by Einaudi. In the same year she received a degree in philosophy. In 1948, Pivano met Ernest Hemingway, resulting in an intense relationship of professional collaboration and friendship. In the following year Mondadori published her translation of A Farewell to Arms. She made her first trip to the United States in 1956. Throughout her professional life she has contributed to the diffusion of the most significant American writers in Italy, from the great icons of the Roaring Twenties, like F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dorothy Parker and William Faulkner, through the writers of the 1960s (Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, William S. Burroughs, Gregory Corso, Lawrence Ferlinghetti), to young writers of recent decades including Jay McInerney, Bret Easton Ellis, David Foster Wallace, Chuck Palahniuk and Jonathan Safran Foer. Pivano was also interested in African-American culture: for example she published many Italian versions of Richard Wright's books. In 1980 and again in 1984 Pivano interviewed Charles Bukowski at his home in San Pedro, California. These interviews became the basis for her book, "Charles Bukowski, Laughing with the Gods" first published in the USA by Sun Dog Press in 2000. In the summer of 2001 she toured the United States to film the documentary A Farewell to Beat, written by Andrea Bempensante and directed by Luca Facchini. The movie is a celebration of the Beat Generation featuring notable American writers, including Jay McInerney, Bret Easton Ellis and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Pivano also wrote about popular music and was an admirer of Fabrizio de André and Bob Dylan.
