Expertise

Cultural Communications

Over the years, Silvia collaborated with a number of prestigious international architectural offices, comunications agencies, arts festivals and companies, gaining solid interdisciplinary knowledge and broad expertise about the arts. According to the tasks and the content, she develops concepts for the fields of art, literature, architecture, design, by providing effective and efficient communication strategies by means of PR tools such as press relations and marketing solutions across multimedia channels. Her communications solutions are thought and tailored to reflect the needs and the philosophy of the studio, artist, festival and book she is working with, thus delivering a strong message and a persuasive story to the public. 


Curating

Her interdisciplinary knowledge and her communicative approach find expression also through Silvia’s curatorial practice. Her approach reflects issues and topics she really cares about and addresses the public with questions about society, politics and culture in order to build a constructive dialogue. She has built solid and fruitful collaborations with artists and architects with whom she develops projects investigating relevant issues, like migration and identity, by means of artistic and architectural interventions. Her projects happen mainly outside the usual white cube and have taken place in refugee camps, in car parks and centres for asylum seekers.
