Roberta Morzetti was born in Tarquinia in 1979. She attended the Academy of Fine Arts "Lorenzo da Viterbo" (ABAV) - in Viterbo, achieving, in 2005, the academic degree with honour. Her experience starts in the fashion field as a stylist, designing clothing lines with recycled materials (Leccal label, Cementarmato, Aporie). In Rome, she became costume assistant for Andrea Viotti, company Gabriele Lavia ("Le Nozze di Figaro", directed by Matteo Tarasco, 2007, Teatro Eliseo; "Misura per Misura", directed by Gabriele Lavia, 2007, Teatro Argentina) , by Laura Costantini (for the musicals "A un passo dal sogno", 2008, "Portamitanterose.it", 2009, directed by Marco Mattolini, Teatro Brancaccio, for the film "There's no two without you", directed by Massimo Cappelli, 2015), by Michela Marino (for the short film "Anni 30", directed by Luciano Melchionna, 2008). Roberta's artistic production exposes us to a dexterity that transforms materials used to express a high ideal of relationship, using the artistic impulse as a healing function, compensatory of a pain that is constantly omnipresent. The first creative impetus is therefore her experience and her memories, which constantly watch over the process of conception, so there is symbiosis and synthesis between the creative passion that needs to be transformed “materia”, and the meanings of the completed work that are multiple and impregnated of symbolic valences, with omnipresent chthonic divinities in background even if not visible. Thus, sex and death (Eros and Thanatos) combine in Morzetti’s work, actually in all her works, which present, without complacency, a perfect correlation between the feminine element, death and life. The sacrificial ritual and the scream of Munch seem to be repeated in her installations and sculptures. The use of white and plaster attenuates the drama of the vision, but reminds us of the “briquettes” of the works of mercy of “Luca Della Robbia” not to make us forget, so it seems, that awareness refines the sensitivity and multiplies the symbolic meanings, and with the awareness that a white veil covers all forms of life as quicklime. Medium and artistic technique developed by Roberta Morzetti refer to an all-Italian tradition of assembly, which finds its first genial expression in Ettore Colla. The wreck, the object found, is relocated and given a symmetrical value in the cry of complaint that accompanies the work. It is clear that what is most urgent to Roberta is the denunciation, the disguised and transfigured rebellion through the beauty of art; but it is still a denunciation, an acknowledgement, a reference to conscience and to a superior morality. All this makes this young artist a vate, with her burden of pain and memories and with her courage to show them to the world. Exhibitions and Events Since 2012, he has devoted herself to the production of large sculptures, moulding directly on her body, and reworking with blowtorch and assembling with other objects.
