I graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Turin, Italy, with a specialization in Graphic Arts (etching). My artistic path departs from drawing and bi-dimensional representation and, through the etching of different materials like wooden, stone and metal printing plates, brought me to experimentation and manipulation. In the last few years I approached Figure Theater especially Shadow Theater. The exigency to bring life to my signs led me to distance my drawings from the paper and bring them to a different dimension – the set on stage, trying to explore and use the dynamism of movements as the key element to build a visual and narrative composition. Shadow Theater brought my artistic experience to a whole new level, in which I found myself playing with materials to build "objects" that I then try to bring to life on stage. This playful and manual dimension of artistic research has been the source of a renewed artistic excitement, which is what brings wishing to participate to the PIP 2015.
Being part of PIP 2015 would be an incredible opportunity for me to deepen my research on Figure Theater, thanks to the advise and tips of an artist who combines creation and interpretation. My goal is to experiment and to broaden my artistic horizons and technical abilities through the dialogue with people who come from different artistic paths and who have a different set of abilities. At PIP 2015, I hope to be exposed to different approaches and various methods for designing and realising objects, especially for the creation of a new theatrical play. The idea is that through the sharing of ideas, experiences and specificities with other participants I'll be able to reach a higher narrative harmony and a more effective communication style. I love the idea of finding and experimenting a common language shared by different artistic traditions, trying to make the best use of the differences and strengths of others. I think this is an amazing opportunity for expressing myself thanks to informed guidelines and suggestions within an actual production context.
