Adriana's story

Adriana in her studio  

Adriana Bodrero is an artist from the Piedmont region of Italy who now works and resides in the small Umbrian town Umbertide.

Following a curriculum in art studies in Turin, Adriana accepted a graphic design position at the studio of Giò Minola, where she refined her knowledge of calligraphy and illustrative scratch drawing, which she would reveal ultimately on glass in an technique application known as "Grisaglia"

The following position with the advertising studio of Ferrero S.pA of Pino Torinese immersed Adriana in an environment with many talented professionals, deepening her knowledge of various illustration techniques.

After transferring to Umbria she worked side by side as freelance graphic artist while apprenticing in glass artistry, which soon became her primary passion and occupation. From then on and with growing interest, Adriana continues in the search and experimentation of this wonderful material, indispensable for the translation of her artistic sensibilities.

Open to the comparison and collaboration with other artists, Adriana and her companion Gianni Ramieri, a photographer (the photos featured on this site are his work), live along with their son Martino, in Montecastelli. Her work is realized on the basis of private and publicly commissioned.
