Maps Exhibitor: Cristina Antonelli

Cristina Antonelli graduated in 2005 with honours in Architectural Engineering at the “Universitá degli Studi di Pisa”. She has since participated in the Bauhaus Kolleg post graduate Program, an interdisciplinary course run by the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, and studied a Master in Visual Design at the Scuola Politecnica di Design in Milano.

Cristina enjoys working in different fields moving from architecture and urbanism to graphic design, and has worked in the cities of Pisa, Edinburgh, Berlin and Florence.

For ‘Maps‘ Cristina has submitted a personal map which was created in response to a brief to design a “Dictionary of myself from A to Z”.

Cristina’s response was to create MELAND, a set of illustrations which make up a way of mapping memories that she feels contributed to shaping her personality.
