Personal website

Nicoletta Calvagna is Doctor in Philosophy and History of ideas and she teaches Italian in CTP. Her interests develop around the observation of the present, in a way that avoids the judgement and prefers the hearing, the writing and the drawing. In 2010 she has planned and realized a laboratory of imperfection, where people have been spurred to look inside and putside of themselves by writing and drawing, in a context characterized by acceptance and curiosity. Since 2005 she works on illustration, collaborating with some (not only) literary reviews and illustrating some books. Her works have been exhibited in various places.


Some of her illustrations are published in:

  • Técne 2011, Campanotto editore, Pasian di Prato (UD), to be published.
