  • Silvia Casilli recently left her academic teaching in order to dedicate more constantly to her artistic research and to activities of education and promotion connected to the art field. She organized didactic labs of contemporary art for children at Nadro’s Museum (the museum connected to the Park of the Rock Engravings in Valle Camonica). She also held theoretical lessons about some artists and practical ones about pictorial techniques in various schools. She assisted dr. Enrico Napoli in the realization of a series of conferences about some Italian Renaissance Artists (2008).

    In Summer 2008 Silvia Casilli took part to a project proposed by the Cultural Association Amici della LABA - Contemporary Art in the UNESCO Human Heritage. The project consisted in a two weeks workshop to which students from different Academies had been invited to work and live together in Valle Camonica (Ceto). To this pilot edition had been invited students from an Italian and a German Academies. She wrote the presentation to the poetry volume (Latcho Drom) by Enrico Napoli, published at Verona in April 2009 from Buonaccorso Edition.

    The artist lives and works near Brescia.

    Since 2010 she works as a didactic operator at Santa Giulia Museum in Brescia for students from 3 to 19 years old about the content of the painting collection and of the temporary exhibitions. The activity comprehends practical labs. At the same time she works with some friends in the realization of contemporary mosaic works.
