Roberta Maola


Roberta Maola was artistically trained at the “A. Valente ”of Sora (Fr). Later she expanded her interests to the study of psychology, after graduating from the "La Sapienza" University of Rome she worked in non-profit organizations. In 2013 she decided to devote herself completely to art. Roberta's work is a reflection on art and psychology, as idiosyncratic languages, opposite angles from which to explore the same entity: the singular and subjective production of emotions starting from thought processes.
