After her postgraduate studies in Art History at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice and at the University of Padua, Sara took up the charming road of restoration, getting her professional license at the Venetian Institute for Cultural Heritage (IVBC), again in Venice.
This dual path between Art History and Art Conservation enabled her to deepen her expertise in the artistic techniques and the modern conservation methodologies of the cultural heritage. She owns a restoration laboratory where she operates on oil paintings on canvas and polychromed wood sculptures. The passion for her country and for the city of Venice has prompted her to research on particular themes, such as the Venetian painting of the XVIII century and the Venetian villas in the mainland countryside. She is authentically fond of museums and churches, too.
Spending some time with her in Venice means getting to know the magnificent artistic heritage that is spread throughout the city. Guests are generally fascinated by her descriptions about how Venetians were able to mount a huge gilded ceiling, to stretch the largest paintings in the world, to move monumental columns from one side to the other of the Mediterranean Sea, to patiently position thousands of mosaic tiles.
She is mother of two young children, and she does know that each family member has different needs. She boasts more than 10-year-long experience in museum education. Therefore, she accompanies with pleasure families that visit Venice, who are for her a stimulating challenge.
