Gina Morandini from an early age worked in the field of weaving and textile. She has been a teacher since 1959, when she founded the Textile, Carpet and Tapestry Art Section at the Udine School of Art. Internationally recognized scholar for her research, she was an active Fiber Artist, creator of the international Valcellina Award competition dedicated to young textile artists.

Her human dimension has led her to take an interest in social problems, especially related to the world of women, and to commit herself personally to the dissemination of  an education aimed at overcoming them.
