Sara Salvemini

lives and works in Milan, where she is an architect.

She is passionate about all forms and ways of representing the city and its spaces but, above all, of how they are lived by people.

She was gifted a very precious box of watercolours that once opened she has never closed again.

Her drawings tell little everyday stories, they are snapshots that represent the way of living and using the spaces of our cities, and, at the same time, they are testimonies to how the public dimension today fades into a more domestic and informal dimension and vice versa.

She has a passion for the mountains, both in summer and in winter, where she escapes whenever she feels the desire to breathe, and for the cinema where she escapes whenever she feels the desire to think.

She likes fried zucchini flowers, Sardinia, peonies and anemones, listening to the radio.
