Federica studied art at Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna and Illustration in Florence. She was then selected for the Masterclass in Visual Art and Design Segni d’acqua at the Venice Bienniale.
She was featured in the Saatchi Gallery Top 10 in 2007 and won the Italian national contest Artefatta in 2008.
Over the course of her career, she has explored and developed her research through live performances, which led her to be invited as visitor professor to the ESAD (Escuela Superior de Arte Dramático) in 2013.
In the last years she has been living in Panama, Central America, and her work was inspired by luxuriant forests where you can feel and breathe Nature's energy, the ocean and the colors of Latin America.
The human figure is central as well, often translated into an abstract language.
She exhibits in Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Portugal, USA, Panama and Colombia.
Simultaneously she collaborates with interior designers and creates illustrations for books, magazines and textile design.
