Born in Sacile (Pordenone) December 7, 1975. Laura De Nadai began her artistic training early (Artistic Maturity in 1993 at the Art Institute Enrico e Umberto Nordio of Trieste).

In February 2000 she completed a Bachelor’s degree with honors at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, also completing complementary examinations in design, interior design, renovation of stone materials, sculpture and photography.

During this period, she also participated in numerous exhibitions and was the decorator for the “Children in Emergencies” organized by Prof. Edoardo Malagigi and journalist Mino Damato. This involved planning the decorations for the bedroom of the ‘Victor Babes Hospital’ – orphanage  in Bucharest.

In 1998 she began her work experience as a restorer for the Superintendency of Artistic Heritage, at Adriano Giachi’s Rest Art, first in Padua in the Villa Nazionale Pisani, then in Florence at the Museo degli Argenti in Palazzo Pitti, where the entire collection of silver plates of “Giovanni da San Giovanni” were rebuilt based on the original cast. The collection was subsequently exhibited at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice.

Since 2003, she has worked as a designer/planner of exhibition stands, and has completed projects for among others, Silca in Napoli and Bilbao, and Biofarma in Bologna and Hong Kong.

As her passion for art and for painting in particular is continuously becoming more intense, she has begun to work continuously with this medium. In November 2006, Laura de Nadai held a major exhibition “Art & Design with Marilyn Monroe” at the Hotel Mons in Ljubljana, where she displayed an entire collection of paintings dedicated to the great Hollywood diva, and a painted piano “Homage to Marilyn”, a work of art which followed the first commission for the creation of a truly personalized piano for the Atrium Club of the Hotel Mons. It was in this context that the idea of uniting art, music and performance grew in a new dimension of art in which the protagonist is the PIANO.

Among the most important works:

  • In 2008 the Council Room of the new Italian Navy aircraft carrier ‘Cavour’, an important representation of the sail ship of Amerigo Vespucci, realized in bas-relief and golf leaf.
  • In 2008, a piano with 30,000 Swarovski crystals for the principal lobby of the cruise ship ‘MSC Fantasia’, launched that same year in Naples.
  • In 2009, a piano with 30,000 Swarovski crystals for the principal lobby of the ‘MSC Splendida’ launched  in July that year in Barcelona.
  • The piano-jewel “Dream of a Spring Night”, with around 60,000 Swarovski crystals set by hand, which draws inspiration from the simplest of nature’s creatures: the field daisy.
