Roberta Mariani


Roberta Mariani (1972) is a Rome-based painter who trained at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome and that of Granada. She is known for her contemporary interpretation of Renaissance colour palettes and pigments.

After studying painting, set design, and printmaking techniques, she worked for several years as an art conservator and pictorial decorator. These jobs allowed her to rework the chromatic universe of past masters, especially from the 14th and 15th centuries, and to put her findings to daily use in her artistic practice. Mariani, in fact, prefers pigments and graphite powder to pre-made colors but, nevertheless, her subjects are mostly abstract with a lively and contemporary aesthetic. 

Mariani began her artistic journey only in 2014, producing mainly pictorial and sculptural works on paper. In recent years she has participated and exhibited in solo and group shows in national museums and institutions, and since 2018, she took over the studio on the top floor of the Ex Pastificio Cerere in Rome.
