Sveva D’Antonio graduated in History of Art at Suor Orsola Benincasa, Naples in 2013 with a thesis on how certain type of movies can be transformed in artworks and enter in the museum space. Sveva is former partner of Laveronica gallery and now she is fully dedicated to the collection of her family CollezioneTaurisano and other parallel projects.
Collezione Taurisano is a private collection of contemporary art based in Naples. Started in the 70 by Paolo Taurisano, now is flourishing thanks to the passion of his son Francesco, together with his wife Sveva D’Antonio. The main focus of the collection now is on living artists who deal with thematics linked to our everyday society. There are no restrictions on medium but instead when the relationship with the artist is fruitful there is an attention on the process of the making of an artwork. The collection now is composed of almost 400 pieces.
