  • Description

    Hei, my name is Martina, I am 26 years old and I come from Valle d'Aosta, in the Italian's Alps, on the border with the France and the Swizterland. I live in a small village in the mountains and I love the contact with nature, where I spend a lot of time and I practice most of my activities (es. collect herbs, berries, work in the garden, chop and sort the wood, take care of animals).
    I like to have an outdoor lifestyle during all the seasons and I like have an active life: the sport for me it's an important routine. (In particular walk in the mountains, practice martial-arts, yoga and icebath). I have an art project where I work with leather and in my free time I enjoy also drive my motorcycle and camping outside.
    I like travel and have cultural exchanges, for some years I have been traveling especially in Norway. During my travels I learned the norwegian language and more about the norwegian lifestyle.
    Flexibel.
    Precise.
    Polite.
    Good organisastion.

    ▪︎Leather craft: I work with the leather.
    I create objects for everyday life (es. sheaths for axes and knives, belts, bags, bracelets, necklaces, etc.)
    My works take inspiration from the folklore (especially from the Alps and from the Scandinavia). Often I like to assemble to my works elements of nature, like wood, bones or stones. (Instagram: Svart Ulv.)

    ▪︎Work experiences in Italy:
    I have experience in factory work, assembly line, machinery, quality control and product packaging.
    In Valle d'Aosta I worked in two importants factory:
    1) Grivel: produces mountain equipment like: ski poles, trekking poles, paddles, crampons and ice axes.
    2) Savio: produces alcohol, including typical products and coffee.

    A the same time I like working outside, with the animals and by hand. This is the best lifestyle for me and in the Alps I can do this kind of works with my family (cut wood, do carpentry work, grow fruit and vegetables, take care of our chickens and go to the woods to collect what nature offers us).
