Authenticity has always ruled Bergonzi’s life. Freedom made it unpredictable. Attached to her Principality and family lineage, she prefers being anonymous in big cities. Being true to her instincts paid off. The originality and quality of her work has brought her art to the 2010 World Expo, in Shanghai, to the United Nations. She currently has two monumental public art sculptures on display in New York. Her unusual journey have been chronicled by the press and TV (New York Times, Wall Street Journal, BFM TV, NY1 TV...).
CAROLINE BERGONZI grew up under the blue Mediterranean sky. After 17 years in this peaceful and international state, she moved to Paris to acquire the tools she judged necessary to obtain her freedom. In parallel to the challenges of business school and postgraduate studies in fashion management, she was active and blossomed in such creatively diverse environments as video games (IN VIVO) and Parisian Haute Couture (Christian Lacroix).
Some exams and missions later, especially in China and in Italy, she chose New York as her new home, for its human masses, its rhythms, and its mosaic of cultures. The brutal reality of this new urban and mental environment encouraged her in a deeper immersion in empiric philosophy, psychology and spirituality. As the angel of the movie "Wings of Desire," she swapped her cerebral perspective for a true experience of being alive, encountering a full gamut of emotions ranging from fear to love, through loneliness, joy, pain, pleasure and inner peace. She recorded them, expressed them, and shared them through her artwork - paintings, sculptures, portraits.
