About me

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, among others makers, a long-lasting collaboration with the director Sandro Mabellini and more recently allowed me to work with the choreographer Dario Tortorelli in his newest creation Transmotion (Rotterdam, august 2019) as his artistic assistant and costume designer

As a costume designer assistant, I have had the chance to collaborate with  Klaus Bruns in the production of Le Prince Igor, that premiered  at Opera Bastille in Paris in Nov. 2019.
I will also be assisting costume designer Agostino Cavalca in Rigoletto on stage in La Fenice, Venezia and in Der Rosenkavalier premierering at Théâtre La Monnaie in Brusseles in 2021.
