The young Italian artist Alessandra Barabaschi graduates in 1992 at the "Paolo Toschi" Art Institute of Parma, five years later, in 1997, she achieves a degree with full marks in Art History at the University of Parma. Her brilliant qualities are soon rewarded with a scholarship for a Master in Economics and Cultural Heritage at the famed Bocconi University in Milan.

The artist spends the three following years in London, where her study of the Great Masters of the Past and her acquaintance with the particularly stimulating artistic environment transform a keen passion for the legendary cultures of the Mediterranean Sea in the pure inspiration to create refined ceramic works that recall in colours, shapes and style the Great Hellenic Masters.
Moreover, in order to better understand the work and style of Euphronios, Exekias, Eutymides and other Masters, the artist embarks on extensive travelling, from New York to Athens, that leads to a deeper comprehension of the intimate relationships and evolutions of the pictorial work of the Great Ceramists of the Past.

In the following years the artist begins to exhibit on a regular basis around Emilia Romagna, her native Region, and, more recently, Tuscany.
Her showroom is in the quaint, small town of Busseto (in the heart of the Pianura Padana) where her masterfully crafted pieces spring to life in a natural setting infused with the unique atmosphere of Verdi's operas.
