Anna Maria Pezzetta - an Illuminated Calligraphy of Auroville
Rome, 1939 > Auroville, 2011
Anna Maria visited Auroville for the first time in 1973 after years of studies, work and poetical research (Goldoni prize in Venice, 1972).
In 1975 she settled in Auroville to live collectively her Adventure of Consciousness. For many years she took part in the work at the Matrimandir and in the pioneer life of that time. The contact with matter and the manual activities opened new, unexplored, fields for her creative energies.

Painting gave her the joy of discovering unsuspected realms of her inner life and the strong subtle connections existing between all living beings and what is considered ‘lifeless matter'.
‘All archetypal forms in the material universe are very simple, and for their evolution are following lines of a secret drawing….'
She has since exhibited her paintings in many places in Italy (Milano, Torino, Bergamo , Ivrea, Novara , Intra, etc.) and in Chennai, Bangalore ,
Pondicherry and Auroville.
She was living in Certitude.
Anna Maria her body on November 2011
I was running after a dream
To write a word
On the sands of time,
A white light
And a thunder
Pierced the lonely Night.
I saw Mother Earth sighing
Deeply, at Her burning core,
Her crystal memories
Embraced my soul.
