An artist and textile designer, Silvia works with mind and hands in symbiosis, leading her to investigate the past – often breaking the rules, albeit with awareness of the ancient technical legacy of hand weaving – and, at the same time, expressing herself with a contemporary code in her research and daring experiments.
After earning a degree in philosophy and a master in art therapy from Turin's l'Università degli Studi, she went on to study textile design and specialized in fiber art. In her work, thread after thread, she expands the definition of “fiber” to include industrial, non-recycled, anonymous, marginal materials like PVC, rubber, plastic, latex, polyurethane and so on – materials that seem hard to associate with any aesthetic quality, but which have the common trait of being “weavable”. Silvia designs and creates contemporary jewels, tapestries, sculpture-dresses and participates in numerous art exhibitions in Italy and abroad. Her creations are part of many permanent fiber art collections.
