Anna Netri studied MArch- MSc in Building Engineering- Architecture at ‘La Sapienza University’ in Rome (Italy). She has always had a strong sensitivity to the art and the landscape that is reflected in her good aptitude in drawing freehand, which has always accompanied her, in her practice as an architect and as an artist. During her last years at University she developed a vivid interest in bringing art into architectural and landscaping design. After her first time living in the UK she produced her first art project ‘The Patchquilt and Boundaries’ in 2012, which was exhibited at the Nottingham Contemporary and at the Central Library for the Refugee week 2012. In 2014 she worked on the creation and development of an engagement project with the volunteer community of Spike Island Artspace Ltd Bristol. This evolved into further projects and an exhibition which she further developed and curated. She took also part to some group shows in Italy and in the UK.
