After a first experience with painting, of post-cubist imprint at the beginning and then informal, the Swiss Italian artist experimented the relations between picture, writing, and natural elements, developing collages and assemblages that fit in visual poetry research.

Handwritten sheets bounded with cotton thread and leaves, music scores positioned within seeds, books in cages or cages of books, her works have been exhibited in important exhibitions such as: Materializzazione del linguaggio (Venice Biennale, 1978); Arte come scrittura (Quadriennale in Rome, 1986); Fotoidea (San Paolo Biennale, 1994); Post scriptum Artiste in Italia tra linguaggio e immagine negli anni ’60 e ’70 (Donna di Ferrara Biennale, 1998). Her works are part of the permanent collection at MUSINF of Senigallia, MART of Trento and Rovereto, Centro Pecci of Prato, MA*GA of Gallarate, MRAG of Mailand and NMWA of Washington.

From 1956, she held over 30 solo shows in Italian and foreign galleries and museums, recently at the Cortesi & Lisanti Gallery in Rome, at the National Museum Women in the Arts of Washington and at the Mailand Regional Art Gallery of Mailand (Australia).
