Tiziana Baracchi - 1952 to 2018

Another artistamp maker leaves us.

I met Tiziana through the mail, especially over books we each produced and shared interests in artistamps, never in person, but she was a good friend to many FLUXUS artists.

"Some history: Tiziana Baracchi was born in Venice, Italy in 1952. She received her MD and worked as an anaesthesiologist in a hospital. In 1978 she met Giancarlo Da Lio, a critic of art. Together they founded ITINERARI 80, an artistic Movimento born to spread art and poetry everywhere, in the philosophy of the Alternative Art Space in the beginning of the 80s. She became active in the Mail Art Network in 1985. In 1989 THE TREE of POETRY was born and THE BEATLES forever Mail Art project, the BLUE and CAR Mail Art projects were started as well (ended in the nineties), and POSTCARD 10X15, ARTISTAMPS, ARTISTBOOK. In 1996 she signed the Manifesto of IPERSPAZIALISMO. Tiziana Baracchi and Giancarlo Da Lio founded the Ambasciata di Venezia, a real embassy of a virtual land and a new Mail Art project. She was invited to the Biennal of Venice in 2003 and 2005 and to London in 2004 and 2006. She died on May 7th, 2018 suddenly due to a heartattack. May she be remembered and rest in peace."
