Interview: Nicole Addati Sansonetti
Luca Curci talks with the artist Nicole Addati Sansonetti during CONTEMPORARY VENICE 2018 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space. 

I was born in Lecce, Puglia (Italy) in 1994. When I was 14th I moved in Rome with my mom, where I have been there for only two years. But there I increased my love for art and culture. We used to visit many monuments during the weekends. Actually since I was really young I loved history and nature, in particular the Egyptian one fascinated me. I got into those subjects thanks also to the National Geographic magazine. Growing up in an house immerses in the nature, a country side, I think gave me a lot of sensitivity. Always I have had a creative mind. Then, studying architecture at the Accademia di Mendrisio for two years gave me the basis to understand what does it means architecture and what it involves. Studying there opened my mind to the possibility of combining all my passions into one: Music, art, geometry, photography, travels, history = architecture. The practical aspect is what I love, the theory is useful to be more precise and competitive, beyond the obvious the cultural importance. Now I’m about to graduate in Master of Architecture and Innovation at the Iuav University of Venice.

Luca Curci What is art for You?
Nicole Addatti Sansonetti – Art means for me expressing yourself, not only from a personal point of view, but also expressing our actual time, our century (social, political, cultural life).

LC – What is the meaning of architecture for You?
NAS – Architecture is a pleasure that makes you want to know, travel, discover, and fortunately it is also a job. Boredom, I believe, does not exist here. We must never stop, but go on constantly looking for something innovative, efficient, sustainable. It is an art useful for the well-being of us human beings. In addition to basic needs, man needs to live in serenity, for this reason he needs a decoration, a good life context that surrounds him. Architecture has to move.

LC – How photography is influencing Your work?
NAS – I’m used to taking pictures of what strikes me at the moment, like a situation, a sunset, a detail or whatever appears in my eyes to amaze or excite me.

LC – What is the experience that has given You a direction in art world? What brought You on the art path?
NAS – My life experiences, my curiosity for cultural differences, my love for music and architecture brought me on the path of art. Since I was very young, I was fascinated by history, traveling with my mother, I increased my interest in exhibitions, art and discovering everything new to me.

LC – What Your art is about?
NAS – Actually, photography in architecture is essential to show the feature of a structure. The importance of knowing how to ‘sell’ what you want to show through a photo. What makes a certain place feel: The perception of a specific place, also based on light, as well as the context and subjective beauty.

LC – What is the most inspiring topic for You?
NAS – Music is my inspiration for anything.
