Within her artistic practice, Giorgia Severi aims to educate people to be more conscious of natural treasures and more respectful of the environment. She wants us to change our attitudes by being aware of the importance of living in a healthy planet. Indeed, in this way, people will become more sensitive, more human. She is deeply interested in everything that concerns nature and the relationship between humans and the Earth. With her work Giorgia Severi shows how life and death are intimately related to the Nature as elements of a never-ending cycle that involves every living creature.
