"Alessandra Bonaventura was born in Rome in 1976. After graduating high school, she moved to Venice for university in Classical Studies where she attended courses and seminars of the history and technique of photography taught by Italo Zannier.
In 1998 she returned to Rome and perfected her photographic training at the Metastudio of Giovanni Canitano, where she took an interest in portraiture and advertising photography.
Simultaneously, she directed her photographic research towards the underground realm of theater productions, where she was able to collaborate with numerous Italian and foreign theater companies, one in particular was with producer Naira Gonzalez of the Odin Theater. She worked with several Milanese art galleries, such as Seti-arte on the publication of a catalogue of Inuit art for an anthropology exhibition at the Pigorni Ethnographic Museum in Rome.
In the past months, she worked on a reportage of illegal rave parties and young Italian and foreign gangs, which aired on the Italian station RAI during their series "Night and Culture."
She is presently working on a project about Italian television, which takes her back to original interests in portraiture and stage design. She entered Contrasto in 2000."
