Federica Marangoni, Venetian artist and designer, working internationally, has throughout her career researched on various materials and technological media. Alongside the sculpturing career, following a precise professional and cultural choice which developed a very eclectic way toward all areas of communication, grows her design activity. In 1970 she sets up in Venice her own design studio: Fedra Studio Design. In the same year she begins to use and experiment with glass working with continuos frequency in many Muranese furnaces. She creates both design objects for the production, as well as glass sculptures and large installations in which the technological media as video and neon light combined with glass make her work unique in the panorama of contemporary art.
From the early \\\'70 the use of electronic technology will always continue to be the way of expression in Marangoni\\\'s work.
From 1976 to 1989 she is assistant professor of the Dept. of Art and Art Education at New York University. She holds seminars at NYU an summer courses in Venice with a workshop on glass. She also holds lectures and courses in many universities in the United States and cultural centers: Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan (1977); Center for Creative Studies, Glass Dept. , University of Art and Design, Detroit, Michigan (1979); Patterson State College, N.J. (1978); Columbia University, New York, NY (1978); Parson School of Design, Altos de Chavon, Dominican Republic (workshop, November 1984); Pratt Institute, New York, NY (1995); Virginia Beach Art Center (1996).
