Born and lived in Venice. Psycologist; videomaker for love. I have been working for many years worked in VET (vocational education and training). I'm a specialist in life long learning processes, elearning, guidance and counselling, recognition, validation and certification of competences, active policies towards employment. In the last few years I worked with artist and master artisans, Council Of Europe and with an university research center in heritage and cultural policy. Now the time has come to move from theory to practice. Mantaris is one of the main outcomes of this change of course. I manage the whole thing, but mainly the website and backoffice. (My photo is an old one, but i love it).
Chilean ceramist. I moved to Italy when I was 19 years old, to study Industrial Design at the Iuav University of Venice, where I graduated in 2010. After that I met a ceramist who made me fall in love with this art and soon became my first ceramic teacher. I began to work with her and in 2011 I decided to move to Faenza and to attend the art school "Gaetano Ballardini" to pursue my studies. In 2014, After many experiences in this field (workshops and seminars for other teachers) I decided to return to Venice and start my own studio. There, I mainly take care of the design and production of handmade pottery, beside teaching the art of ceramics throughout the year.i.
I studied critic of art at DAMS, in Bologna, and then I had a master in economics of culture, in Venice; I developed an interest towards the protection of intangible cultural heritage (which includes craftsmanship and traditional techniques). I always had a great passion for music and experimenting with new musical forms, including unconventional instruments. I practiced performing arts since young: music on stage, club, live sets, festivals, street art and circus performances. I have always devoted much time to writing articles, reviews and essays and I currently collaborate with various magazines. At Mantaris I take care of the content and the communication in the different channels that contribute to the site's SEO.
