- Michele Pieri, Author -
Born in Verona, Italy, I held various senior manager positions in operations, sales and marketing in Italy, UK and the USA, where I lived and worked for over ten years in New York. I founded and managed several businesses: a Telecommunication Agency, a Music Publishing Company, three Japanese Restaurants, a Cloud-based Events Software Company, and a Venetian-style Restaurant.
In my spare time I listen to all kinds of music, I play the piano, and I'm a passionate cook (and a good fork!), but above all I am a happy husband and father of three fantastic children.
Now I live in London where I am developing new business ideas.

Born in Vicenza, Italy, I graduated as Art Teacher at the 'Boscardin Art School' and subsequently she graduated as Illustrator at the 'International Comics School' of Padua. My areas of artistic competence are diverse: from traditional painting techniques to graphics and digital painting. I am a caricaturist, illustrator, sand artist, live-painter and body-painter.
In 2019 I founded Artefatta association, holding individual and group courses on drawing and painting techniques both for adults and children. Last but not least, I collaborate on a permanent basis with several associations, entertainment and communication agencies.
