Nicoletta Cerasomma is a pop surrealist photographer, based in Lucca, Italy, with a background in staged photography. Her work is bound to an ambiguous and cinematic image-making between reality and imagination. As visual artist, her approach to photography aims to provoke contemplation and a new redefinition of commonplaces through a playful revelation of the bizarre and the uncanny. She is most known for her series "Cryptic Venus", created in 2020, which depicts women placed in suggestive scenarios.

Teresa Bandettini was one of the most talented eclectic woman of the XIX century, born in Lucca in 1763. She is well known as "the intellectual dancer" due to her captivating and touching extemporization performances. She was so talented that she became the first woman to be admitted to the Arcadia Academy with the name of Amarilli Etrusca. The aim of this project is to give her the deserved place in Art and History and celebrate her creative genius. I portrayed her through a series of diptychs inspired by Teresa's feminine character and the deep knowledge she could source to create her art.
