DATE OF BIRTH
Luisa Turuani is born on 11 June 1992 in Milan, where
she lives and works. In 2014, she obtained the Bachelor in Sculpture at Brera Academy
of Fine Arts, where she also got the Master in Fine Arts in 2017. Turuani

at the same time. Turuani’s artworks are not objects to look passively, but
subjects that call in question the nature of human being. She won Combat

In the same year she was finalist at Laguna Prize XIII Edition in performance
