Italian artist Luca Alinari, born in 1943, has always been passionate about painting, though he was a literary critic early in his career. He was the editor of magazines and a reviewer of narrative texts.
His first personal art show dates back to 1969 in Florence, Italy. There he made a name for himself in the Italian cultural panorama and soon became one of the most important contemporary artists. Over the years Alinari has painted on various materials, from frescoes to plexiglass, from wood to cloth, which, mounted on canvas, allows the artist to obtain very original colors.
In 1982 he participated in "Arti visive '82," at the Venice Biennale; in 1986 he participated in the XI Rome Quadriennale.
His works express themselves through considerable figurative accuracy, tied to his intent observation of nature, in the evolution of the seasons, the colors of the sky and leaves, and in people's gestures.
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.
