Born in Catania in 1962, Giovanna Mancuso graduated from the Istituto d'Arte of Catania, collaborating with Nino Mustica. In 1986 she continued her studies at the DAMS Performing Arts school of Bologna, and in 1988 she participated in the "Biennale Giovani Bologna." Since then, she actively shows her works in exhibitions all over the country, and also abroad, exhibiting at "Japanese Garden" in Catania, "MarteLive Biennale" in Rome, "International Mail Art projects" between Brazil, Italy, Spain and Portugal, and "Verba Volant, Art Manent," as well as "Art Takes Times Square "and "Creative Rising Exhibition" in New York.
Continuing the search for different forms of expression, the artist came to the study of Zen and oriental Shodo calligraphy. Oriental calligraphy, intimately linked to painting, is a real artform and a practice that requires constant exercise and does not allow for imperfection.
Founded in 1980, AMO lavita ONLUS is composed of the medical and nursing staff of the Operative Unit of Oncology of Milan’s San Carlo Borromeo Hospital as well as volunteers. Supporting the sick and their families is the aim of the association.
