Benedetta Manfriani, visual artist and singer, has explored through the years different techniques and languages – video, art installations, photography, music, ceramics, graphics – giving birth to multiform works. Her works were exhibited in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, France, Portugal, United Kingdom, USA.
She cooperates with the electronic music research, production, and educational centre Tempo Reale – both in the didactic area and in the production of multimedia works – and with the theatre company Catalyst. She currently is an artist in residence at the MAD Murate Art District. She runs the Orkestra Rosa choir composed with the female convicts of Florence’s prison of Sollicciano. In 2016 she created CONfusion, a multiethnic vocal group composed by people from many different countries in the world which aims to the inclusion of immigrants through music and performances.
