At the age of 13, Luisa Menazzi Moretti (Udine, 1964) left Italy to move with part of her family to Texas where she went to high
school and college. In those years she attended photography courses, showing a preference for developing and printing blackand-white photographs. She came back to live in Europe and got her degree in Modern Foreign Languages and Literature at the University of Udine; she worked in London and then moved back to Italy where she lived in Bologna, Rome, Venice and Naples.
In recent years she had transformed her passion for photography into projects, exhibits and publishing. Among her exhibits: Ten Years and EightySeven Days, a work on the death penalty, shown at the Robert F. Kennedy International House of Human Rights in Florence (2024), the Ma.co.F,- Center of Italian Photography – in Brescia (2023), the Santa Maria della Scala Museum in Siena (2017) and the EMOP – European Month of Photography in Berlin (2016); I Am, shown at the MUDEC in Milan (2021), at Palazzo Lanfranchi National Museum of Matera (2018), at the Archeological Museum of Potenza (2018), at the Palace of the Arts (PAN) in Naples (2018); Solo, at the MATA for the Philosophy Festival of Modena (2019); Somewhere at Villa Manin, Udine (2016); Tre Oci tre mostre at the Tre Oci Foundation in Venice (2015); Words, shown at the Universal Forum of Culture, Naples (2015), at the Gallery Tina Modotti in Udine and Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Pordenone (2014); Nature’s Matters, and exhibit for the Modern Art Museum of Genova (2014). Her books have been published by Artem (Far Fading West, 2023), Giunti (I Am, 2017), Contrasto (Ten Years and Eighty-Seven Days, 2016), Gente di Fotografia (Somewhere, 2016) and again Artem (Nature’s Matters, 2014 and Words, 2013). Three of her projects, Ten Years and Eighty-Seven Days, I Am and My Home – a work dedicated to the children of the Spanish Quarters in Naples, where the artist lives part of the year – have been awarded with four Honorable Mentions at the International Photography Awards of New York. The last project of Luisa Menazzi Moretti, I Remember, I See Again, will be shown in the exhibit Il Vittoriale delle italiane at the Vittoriale in Gardone Riviera for Brescia Photo Festival 2024.
