Mrs. Bedello was born in March 1950 in Turin, a north-western industrial city of Italy.
She loves painting since she was a child, and has attended several painting classes throughout her life, specializing in painting on ceramic ware and fabric.
After graduating and getting a high school diploma with specialisation in teacher training, she became a teacher; for many years she wrote theatric plays, drew and built set designs and stage costumes for her pupils theatre plays which took place in some of the most important theatres of the city of Turin.
In the Nineties Mrs Bedello moved to Venice, where she opened her Art Gallery in one of the most typical district of the lagoon city: the Ghetto.
She promoted and introduced onto the art market other Artists works, and at the same time she became the pupil of Luigi Rocca, great Italian hyperrealist painter who exclusively exhibits his artworks at her Art Gallery. From Mr Rocca, she particularly learned to appreciate and represent details and small particulars.
After running the Gallery for many years, she felt she wanted to paint again.
As a subject for her return to painting, she chose colourful busy shopwindows of typical American shops. In this way she is able to merge her passions into canvas: the United States, shops and puzzles.
Donatella permanently exhibits her artworks at Melori & Rosenberg Gallery in Venice, Italy and at Arnot Gallery in New York, USA.
