Works, Art and Alchemy of Rita Minelli

Rita Minelli was born in Cento (Ferrara). Lives and works in Bologna.
She created and founded the SPAZIO RUBEDO, an alchemy-evolutionary laboratory: where she runs the Art and Inner Awareness labs. This is also her art atelier, the focal point of her works, art and alchemy.

Even since she was a little girl, she was passionate about the world of Art and paintings. She experimented on her own designs and techniques on canvas. She is self-taught and continues to pursue research in art and spiritual awareness.

As an adult, she entered the Arts Academy of Bologna (Accademia delle Belle Arti di Bologna), particularly the Scenography courses of Prof. Mario Brattella, with the intent to learn and explore Space in all its expressions and narratives.

During her academic studies, scenography and painting functioned hand-in-hand for Rita, who painted faces and oneiric creatures on canvas, and also developed scenography concepts and wooden models. Two worlds that may appear as separate, but that gradually unite to give life to her compositions and three-dimensional universes.

She graduated in Scenography Cum Lauda and continues to this day her artistic path of research in a self-taught manner.

The Spiritual Path in the material world and vice versa

In parallel to the Art ecosystem is the spiritual world, where matter is transported and vice versa in a continuous exchange of profound communion.

Rita has been investigating from an early stage the Creational power of Art through Matter and Spirit, symbols and archetypes.

“I have always been on a personal alchemical path, in other worth a life journey full of love that has no boundaries. I love to bravely travel in and out of the space-time dimensions, getting lost and resting on the annulment of borders.
Through Art, I can break molds, bend and transform my own rules, explore the various dimensions of Spirit and Matter and… create dreams in meaning and meaning into dreams.”

Emptiness is empty, we are the ones who fill emptiness with matter but if love is missing, it remains empty matter.
