Claudia Virginia Vitari was born in Turin, Italy. She studied at Burg Giebichenstein, Hochschule fuer Kunst und Design (University for Art and Design), in Halle an der Saale, Germany, where she graduated in 2004 in painting and graphics with Prof. Ulrich Reimkasten. The artist also attended several workshops on working with glass.

Vitaris projects are based on a study of total institutions: a graphic documentation evoking a confrontation between single stories and the institution, as part and mirror of society itself. PERCORSOGALERA(2009) was realized inside Turin’s penitentiary and Le Città Invisibili(2012) in Barcelona in collaboration with Radio Nikosia, the first Spanish radio organized by people who have been diagnosed with mental diseases. Both projects received a grant of RegionePiemonte. Vitari is now working in Berlin, investigating through her artistic documentation the current issue of migration in Europe ( OPlatz, Interstitial Identities) .
