Franchi Franca

Born in Piacenza (Italy), after attending grammar school in her hometown and obtaining a law degree at Parma University, Franca Franchi practiced law, apparently overlooking her artistic skills, which her primary school teachers had identified, taking her part successfully in pictorial competitions.

Her creative process was overseen by Gillo Dorfles who has supervised and hosted the exhibition “Il segno e la luce"(june 2015), event that took place in a suggestive medieval hamlet in Vigoleno (PC), which is famous also for the artists who have been connected with it over the years as Max Ernst, Lucio del Pezzo, Enrico Bay, Maurice Henry and others.

In 2020, Franca Franchi opened the Atelier of Water Cristals in the neo-Gothic village of Grazzano Visconti, Piacenza, Italy, fully creating the house, the laboratory, and the exhibition space. The atelier houses a selection of unique pieces, which allow those to journey into the history of the artist, from the first works called "Water Crystals" (2008-2013), which give the name to the space, to her jewels (wearable sculptures) to luminous sculptures, all the way up to the new creations of points of light, such as light fixtures and chandeliers.
