Alessandra Mercurio, also known as "Sasha".
Born in Benevento in the ‘80 surrounded by artistic inputs, growing up, after several years in London, she arrives in the Eternal City where she decides to combine her two great passions: art and people.
Expert in Communication and Design with an international background and an experience developed in multinational companies, Interior and ExhibitionDesigner, ICF certified LifeCoach and Art-Therapist.
Her artistic soul is the result of her father’s love (whose painting beauty inspired her since she was young) and of her mother’s (who, with her creativity mixed with a practical sense, taught her the true meaning of problem solving).
She means art to help people expressing themselves and rediscover new dimensions, new resources to reach their own goals, whether personal, professional or relational.
