I'm Raffaella Folgieri: artist, scientist, and science communicator. I'm a curious and multifaceted person, and I've always wanted to create a bridge between the two worlds of art and science, to offer new perspectives and reveal unexplored horizons. My artworks rang from sculpture to digital art, virtual reality, and short films. They are all pieces created with passion, in which my personality and sensitivity emerge. Through my art, I explore new forms, colours, and sounds, conducting an aesthetic and sensory research that aims to create immersive experiences and deep sensations.
I'm also a scientist, with a solid academic background and a passion for innovation, technology, and science communication. My research activity mainly focuses on artificial intelligence, virtual reality, machine learning, brain-computer interface, and learning methodologies. Thanks to my research activity, I'm able to merge my creativity and knowledge to create artworks that interact with science and technology, bringing art into a new and unexplored territory.
Currently, I am also involved as a national expert for the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (PNRR) on digitalisation, commissioned by the Italian Council of Ministers (Consiglio dei Ministri).
I live in a wonderful country, Italy, and in a city, Milan, which allows me to be an integral part of the vibrant European dimension.
