Women are not born, they are made. No biological, psychic, economic destiny defines the aspect that the female of man has within society; it is the whole of history and civilization that elaborates that intermediate product between the male and the castrated that we call woman.

Irene Giannaccini born in Pietrasanta, deepens her artistic training by graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Carrara in the Sculpture course.
He works in his studio in the historic center of Carrara, in close contact with artists from all over the world, participating in exhibitions in Italy, France and Norway. Experiment with the use of various techniques, from ancient and traditional to contemporary.

For his sculptures he chooses materials such as marble, wood, bronze, terra cotta, resins; feeling the need to use different mediums based on the value one wants to give to the work and above all to better convey the concept one wants to express.
It represents the woman, or rather a part of her through a fragment, a debris, in a certain sense it "empties" her, blocks her in the representation of her own body, as if it were broken, torn to pieces.
The woman tells the story inspired by the texts of philosophers and writers such as "The second sex" by Simone de Beavoir or "The whole woman" by Germaine Greer: coming to feel the need to communicate, to share, to want to rewrite, engrave and print them on some sculptures .
