Anna Russo is an Italian writer and visual artist. She has published novels with the most famous Italian publishing houses including Einaudi, Mursia and Salani.

She combines her love of literature with painting and sculpting talents to create real works of art. Pouring concrete and engraving words with knives on canvas, adding acrylic and playing with different materials in a constant search for new artistic dimensions. Her paintings are bas-reliefs with a different structure that gives them a dramatic emotional impact.

She cleverly engraves words from novels, poems and songs onto canvas, allowing her art to grow and evolve into fluid and legible paintings, with elegant and emotional calligraphy, the juxtaposition of lines, shapes and colors, creating works of art that are visually rhythmic.

Anna Russo's works of art include the collection of sculptures named "The world in your hands": each world she forms has a unique design and represents a different emotion and mood. Each world communicates an ideal human condition, a vision or a desire to be fulfilled.

She currently lives and works in Milan, all her works are handmade and created in her studio, where she makes bespoke pieces and continues to experiment with new media and design.

Anna's works are exhibited in the most prestigious galleries and showrooms in Italy, Europe and the Far East. An entire collection of her artistic career is on display at the Binario 21 Museum in Milan, Italy.

 

The Cause

The mission at the heart of Theodora is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.

At the Theodora Children’s Charity, we believe that laughter is the best medicine. Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centers across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that EVERY sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.

Our Giggle Doctors are professional performers, highly trained to work both in the medical environment and with children with disabilities. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and bring with them a variety of skills (among our team are actors, entertainers, magicians, musicians and singers). The training consists of a rigorous schedule of artistic and medical workshops, which cover topics such as child development, infection control, child bereavement and the impact of illness and bereavement on families.
