Manuella Ferrera began studying art in Italy at the age of fourteen at The Istituto d’Arte di Duccio by Siena Boninsegna.

In 2001, she studied engraving at the School of Fine Arts in Brussels. 2004, she divides her life and work between Paris and Tuscany – between city and country – two atmospheres where she is inspired to perform her sculptures colored with sadness and melancholy.

She has participated in numerous exhibitions since 1996 in Italy, France, Belgium and Japan.
