Between 2009/2010 she realizes several works on “polisensorialità” (the concept that things have various meanings) and on the areas of the brain interested by it. This theory is explained in a multimedial publication : “Polisens , learning the polisensory pleasure”
In 2011 she takes part to the 50th Biennale of Venice with two works on the law of opposites ,a very intriguing subject from which comes out an itinerant exibition “L’opposto e L’uno” ( The opposite and the one) ; exibition also presented for the opening of the Auditorium in Isernia.

In 2018 she starts the project “ Sexes” in collaboration with Pietro Tonti, art director, journalist of visual communication. She also develops a sculptural production : “Le scarpe di Giulia” (Giulia’s Shoes), a metaphor of modern life , of appearing unconventional.
In 2019 the “Spiteful Collection” : a collection arising from an ancestral need for not taking our existence too seriously , existence that is often ephemeral, changing and never completely in our hands.
The paradox is supported by irony and spite conceived to defuse the moment impressed on the canvas; spaces and objects are not meant to represent the eternal static, they ask for hilarity not contempt, an almost perverse game between the sacred and the facetius ,opposites culminating in a girl smiling in the foreground, in a banana peel always present in existential slips. “Defusing” is the new centre of Giulia’s creative universe , “defusing” through the “spiteful” , where everything is allowed , granted in the name of a new asyncronous language ,never redundant, but innovative ,disobedient ,against the idea of a world where everything is organized, precise ,classified. Unmistakable are the characteristics of Giulia’s art ,alternative icons of communication ,deserving respect and careful consideration.
