Born on 11th May 1973 in Messina, where she lives and works. Graduated in Environmental Engineering in 1998, at the University “La Sapienza” of Rome.
She worked principally for environmental, waste and light systems.
The passion for her profession and research brings her to experiment “The art of recycle”.
With original techniques she decontextualizes and converts waste materials into pieces of art exhibited in Italy and abroad.
Art and design, jewellery, accessories and an environment- sustainable fashion line, she produces sculpture objects whose aesthetic value competes with the ethical value of a great environmental project, because art can transform a problem into an opportunity.
In her artistic laboratory, a fascinating refurbished industrial space, she also involves a number of other local artists in art&design projects using industrial waste materials. In this way Linda Schipani created a very original art collection, the EcoLlection, in which every pieces of art has been realized using only old electrical components coming from the electromechanical family's factories where she found her artistic space.
This initiative, that she called “ArtEcoDesign in factory”, proposes itself as a possible model for an efficient environment strategy to be adopted by different manufacturing industries with the objective of minimising production and disposal of waste material by means of an intelligent, constructive, creative and ecological approach to the problem.
