Un affascinante viaggio all’interno della creatività che si sposa con la natura, i colori, lo spirito dell’Oriente e quello storico e più fascinoso dell’Occidente. Cittadina del mondo, come ama definirsi, Arianna –dottorato in Letteratura antica e Archeologia all’Università di Roma, ha soggiornato a lungo in Thailandia, Laos, Burma, Cambogia e in India, e oggi vive negli Stati Uniti, tra New York e Miami.
“I was born to live free and to express myself through Art. The passion for life and for learning guides me, like Ariadne’s thread. The spiritual and artistic QUEST takes me to places far from my Country of birth. In the journey I find myself in my work and I discover Countries and Cities where I feel home. New York Bali Singapore Miami Beach Bangkok. I am ON THE WAY, In Cammino …”
