Born in 1918 in Germany to Spanish parents, Antonio Bueno studied in Spain and Switzerland and moved to Italy in 1940, obtaining Italian citizenship in 1970.
During his artistic career he experimented with different techniques, carrying out numerous stylistic studies. From his eclectic body of work, his figures of busts and heads with rounded and simplified characteristics are his best known pieces.
Bueno exhibited a few months before his death at the Venice Biennale in 1984, when he was already seriously ill: at the exhibition he presented a series of works that undoubtedly represent the crowning moment of his career.
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.
