Lucia grew up in Rome, where she graduated in 2001 with a thesis on Roman fresco decoration, after which she took part in an internship at the Louvre. In Florence since 2003, she expanded her passion for drawings, thanks to a student's grant at the Longhi Foundation of Art History. She has also continued building on her knowledge of minor arts with a Master's program at the University of Florence and an additional license in wood restoration. In the last few years, Lucia has been strongly interested in the movement of artworks for temporary exhibitions. She has also worked as Chief Curator at the Czech Center Museum in Houston (US) for 9 months, cataloging the collection and collaborating with all museum's cultural activities and promotions.
