Born in Genoa, Italy, Gabriella Di XX Miglia received an education in the Ligustica Academy of Fine Arts in Genoa doing studies with with Rocco Borella and Mimmo Rotella, than for three years continued her training under Guido Chiti and Palma Viardo. Finally in 1979 she obtained a Master Degree in Art Restoration and Conservation. Gabriella's works have been shown annually in both national and international shows. Her paintings are in the collections of private, corporate and public sectors. Gabriella paints a variety of subjects using different media, however she can not be categorized as still life, portrait, trompe l’oeil, oil, pastel, watercolor or mixed media artist. She pushes herself even more working on sculpture and designing jewelry and fashion.
Her ultimate satisfaction comes from continually inventing, stretching and improving herself. Her search for new ideas, new methods, new techniques is a never ending quest as an artist.
Gabriella takes pride in being part of a family of artists such as her mother, a fine china painter, her grandmother, a violinist and author, her uncle, Alessandro Casagrande, a pianist and composer, and her great uncle Alessandro Lupo, a very accomplished postimpressionist painter and protege’ of Emile Bernard.
