About The Artwork

Automa-CV-21 is a small androgynous bronze bust, with a displaced face. The concept repeats a mask, but this time the mask does not hide a house, it IS the face. It is confused what it is and what it hides. the face appears to be ripped and removed from its place, but it is still anchored to the head. It is more of a forward projection, and this is indicated by the serene expression of this little character. It could be a robot from an Asimov tale Francesca plays with the skates: the head has an industrial and old look, while the face is smooth and shiny, of an antique gold polish. THIS IS A SERIE OF 6: each patina will be special and unique because it is handmade.

Human faces and bodies are combined with different textures, skins and elements, giving birth to hybrid beings.
 Through unusual, bizarre and surreal bodies, my work focuses on the issues of transformation, identity, sense of belonging, self perception and dreams, linking the actual world to a mythological and ancestral universe. I work with the idea of an unconventional beauty as a way of reflection about human values, suggesting different reactions and emotions, and the possibility to question our perceptions. As an artist, I think that the most important task of art is to provoke new feelings and ideas, and finally evoke a change in the viewer. I mainly use sculpture because it is an immediate and direct language without abstraction or synthesis. The sculpture is inevitably honest, solid, hides nothing; It is a perfect tool for self-knowledge and for knowing each other, displaying the ability to contact with yourself." BIOGRAPHY I was born in Florence, Italy, in a hot summer day. My childhood was filled with a grandmother that takes me around all the museums of the city and tells me all the wonderful stories of the life of great Renaissance artists. And when I’m not with grandma, I spent long afternoons drawing, painting or making small sculptures. I was told that at the age of 4 years I made a series of portraits so impressively resembling to my entire family, that everybody pictured me as a future great famous artist. Years later, when choosing high school, art school seems the most natural thing. Unfortunately mom and dad do not agree. What kind of a job is to be an artist? You don’t want to starve doing portraits in the church square! Then, having no choice, I attended five years of Science High School, followed by the University, the Faculty of Physics. I’ve got the best grades but I’m not happy at all. Unexpectedly in the mid of my studies and against the wishes of the parents, I decide out of the blue to leave the university to try to enter the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, the secular Brera. The summer of 1999 begins my biggest and most challenging dream: studying art. So excited! After four years, I graduated.
