Francesca Leoni is an Italian video artist and performer with a degree in Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina (Wilmington, USA). While studying at university she began attending theatre workshops focused on body and emotions through “the method”. Back in Italy she became more and more involved in cinema and video art by studying under Italian and foreign teachers.

Her primary objective is the investigation of the body conceived as a soundboard for emotions which cast a light on the correlation between man and his life in the contemporary world by using performances, video art and experimental cinema. In June 2011 a collaboration with video artist and performer Davide Mastrangelo led to the birth of Con.Tatto. Their works are distributed through international video art and performance festivals and platforms related to this specific area.
