Chiara Spagnoli Gabardi is Italian by birth, British by upbringing, and a New Yorker at heart. After working on film sets, she became a journalist starting with film criticism. Today, the topics she covers embrace culture and international affairs (since she graduated in Political Science) on all mediums: print, online, radio, and television. Chiara has also established herself as a visual artist and her Material Puns have been exhibited in London, Paris, Milan, Rome, Venice, Oxford, and Manhattan. Through her professorship in Phenomenology of Contemporary Arts, she manages to bring together her diversified work in the arts and media with a keen eye on current issues such as sustainability and humanitarian affairs.
