About me

credits Laila Pozzo

Chiara Amaltea Ciarelli

Born and raised in the Netherlands where I’ve attended the French school, I moved to Italy in 2009 to continue my studies obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Industrial design and a second Bachelor in Set Design at the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna.

During my studies, I have always chosen to complement the academic formation with periods of internship and work in theatres such as the Opera di Firenze and the Opera du Capitole in Toulouse.
During the summer of 2014, I was one of the young artists of the youth program of the Ruhr Triennale Festival and followed the genesis of the show Neither beside Romeo Castellucci. I’ve also collaborated with Plastikart Lab on the creation of the prosthetics and makeup for the show The Metope of the Parthenon again directed by Romeo Castellucci staged in Paris in November 2015.

My work as a costume and set designer includes a long-lasting collaboration with the director Sandro Mabellini among others makers and will allow me to assist the costume designer Klaus Bruns in the production Le Prince Igor, premiering at Opera Bastille in Paris in Nov. 2019

In addition to these works, my artistic path has recently been enriched through my involvement in Dario Tortorelli‘s newest creation Transmotion as his artistic assistant and costume designer.
