The promise land

The promise land

The promise land


Two of my artworks for Gaia are vaginas. They represent a vision of our planet.

Life grows from it.

In the first vagina I imagine a vulva as a promise land, seen from the space, where everything is possible, where there is environmental protection, respect for nature, human beings and animals.

The second vagina is blood. Blood as life. Blood as lymph.

In art blood is often symbol of death and violence but in this case I represent a vulva full of blood, in two different momentsthe time of the birth and the menstrual cycle.

The Earth is a fertile female, is Pachamama.

We must have respect for Her.

Earth is the Big Vagina.

I love this theme, Im an archaeologist and the cult of Mother Earth is as ancient as the human being.

My third artwork is our planet, covered by sea foam.Water as life.

At the beginning was the water

    Born in Genoa, where I live and work.

    Graduated in archaeology, I worked 12 years in an Ethnological Museum and travelled all over the world.

    I developed a big passion for textiles and have attended weaving courses in Accademia di Belle Arti in Genoa and photography courses.

    The archaeological excavation has become a soul searching.

    My work is based on a first period Pensiero Acefalo, the realization of an oneiric experience resulting in the creation of anthropomorphic and asexual beings without head, hands and feet, placed on different types of textiles.

    My acephalous thought is the synthesis of our timea time where mind, reason  and money are the winners.

    Its necessary to start feeling again. The mind is less important than emotions. Hence the head can disappear.

    Our body has an ancient memory and conserves the present and the past in our womb.

    If we put our hand on the womb, we can perceive visible and invisible things.

    Its a shamanic act.

    In the last period I got closer to digital art and photography.

    I exhibited my works in Italy and abroad.
