Federica Marangoni, an internationally active Venetian artist and designer, has researched a variety of materials and technological media throughout her career. Parallel to her sculptural activity, following a precise professional and cultural choice, her design production has grown and developed in a very eclectic way towards all areas of communication. In 1970, she set up her own design studio in Venice: Fedra Studio Design. In the same year, she began to use and experiment with glass processing on a continuous basis in many Murano furnaces: she creates both design objects for production and glass sculptures and large installations, in which technological media such as video and neon combined with glass make her work unique in the contemporary art scene. Since the mid-1970s, the use of electronic technology has always continued to be the expressive route in Marangoni’s work. From 1976 to 1989, she was an assistant Professor in the Department of Art and Art Education at New York University. She holds seminars at NYU and summer courses in Venice with a workshop on glass, and she lectures and teaches courses at many US universities and cultural centres. She has also exhibited in numerous international museums and exhibitions.
