Visitors will admire some of her prestigious awarded creations, such as the ceramic sculptural group Riconciliazione e Fratellanza, awarded with the Targa D’Oro in 1975, L’Olmo Racconta, a polychrome ceramic sculpture of 1997, the face-vase Giano Bifronte of 1974, and the Vaso con Visi of 1973. Every element of the collection is the result of an emotional and technical journey, and determines the materialization of her dreams, her fears, and her artistic story.
