Silvina Spravkin, Argentinian sculptor, has lived and worked in Pietrasanta for 30 years. Traveling through Europe she discovered Pietrasanta, and its intense artistic and artisanal life, which she then made her home. She works in marble and in mosaic; her sculptures are intimate, magical and transformative, and linger between memories and dreams of a life lived in harmony with the earth
