Paola Grizi developed her love of art when she was still a child, while watching the work of her grandfather, who was a well known Italian painter and sculptor. After graduating from high school in classical studies and earning a first class honors degree in Italian literature, she worked in the journalistic and editorial field.
In the meantime, she grew her deep enthusiasm in art and she begun to create some sculptures in clay. In fact her artistic imprinting reemerged with great strength and was responsible for her choosing to dedicate herself to becoming a professional sculptress.
She has had numerous exhibitions in various Italian cities (Rome, Faenza, Venice, Florence, Milan, Pisa, Ferrara…). In 2014 she won the 3rd Bi-annual International ceramics contest of Ascoli Piceno (Italy) and in 2014 and 2015 has been invited twice by Chinese Changchun Municipality to represent Italy at the 3rd and 4th China Changchun International Ceramics Symposiums. In 2015 she won the special public Award in the 35° CICA International competition de L’Alcora (Spain) and in 2016 she was invited to be part of the Jury of the same international Spanish contest.
In 2016 she has been choosen by the Pontifical Gregorian University in collaboration with the Kunst-Station of Köln (Germany) for a contemporary art project in the church of Sankt Peter of Köln with other 11 international artists. The creative process of the artists will be the main subject of the exhibition to be performed in the Vatican Museum in December 2016.
