Back in 2011, the hotel hosted Gospel, Funky, Jazz & Soul, Cumbia concerts with live painting as well as photography and dance- theatre shows during sunset. The challenge of merging different art discipline around a swimming pool in the “Ibiza Fashion” scene was accomplished
Soon after that, restaurant NAGAI, in the heart of the island, commissioned FGS to organize a personal art exhibition for “Sola” a renowned artist in Ibiza not only for her art but also for her support of other residents artists.
FGS begins to collaborate with the magazine DUB Ibiza and heads a space for live music and visual art interviews in Ibiza
In 2012 Lucia was a member founder of TeTRA, a farming warehouse converted into Art workshops by Xabi Soler, giving place to the creation of an art collective of varied styles. Within a short time, the collective gives place to the Art and Culture Association – TeTRA Ibiza with the clear objective of sharing art, expression, moments, and life. Lucia is currently Vice President of the Association.
TeTRA art association has successfully produced and sponsored live events, workshops, seminars, and many other happenings in a space open to all.

FOR THE LOVE OF ART
Lucia began working with artists at a very young age. In love with the language of art where she found healing in all senses, she began a search all over Italy and inside Italian artists.
Activist, creator and pioneer for Italian TV programs dedicated to music and to the visual and plastic arts scene, following mostly underground currents (Match Music TV- Odeon TV – Television.net – RAI radio Italia). ARTDAY was the first program (1998-2001) to support urban and graffiti art in times where it was considered vandalism. Lucia even hid herself in order to film the artists as they painted trains.
TERRITORIO INDIPENDENTE (1996-2001) was the first independent program to be hosted in her country. She hit the Street, entered sociocultural squats, went into houses and artista studios, workshop…every interview was a journey into the life and works of the artista.
Her motivation was to bring art out of institutions and galleries and make it available to a larger public, to break the barriers that shut art off and destiny it to a selected few, and to stimulate the innate artistic abilities found in each being (the artista child)
Lucia also learns music, through the piano and later releases her musical talent by playing vinyls for a long and successfull period under the name of Dj LUCY BEE. She also was a selector for compilations of Harley&Muscle, SoulStar Rec.
Coming across the international art magazine ROJO (2004) edited in Barcelona, she begins collaborating in order to distribute and promote one of the most representative contemporary art editions, reknown for its visual, not oral content, where the reader is allowed to awaken personal emotions.
Together with Lorenzo Gatti, they establish ROJO’s first art gallery in Italy (Milan 2006-2010) connected to 33 worldwide galleries with leading contemporary artista.
ROJO Magazine defines Lucia as a Cultural Activist (Marc Mascort)
Meanwhile she accomplishes the support of multinational corporations towards underground artists, organizing live concerts accompanied by live painters and theatre plays for Coca Cola, Carlsberg, Lancia, Camel, Müller among others.
IN 2009 she organized an Independent Rock Music Contest and Conference with the participations of Conservatory Musicians and Dj’s highlighting new technologies in comparison to the Vinyl tradition in the Leonardo da Vinci Museum in Milan (DEJ 2009)
She joined forces with the idealist and visionary Anna Marcuri and they created the first event for wellness in Milan (2004) offering more than 50 therapists during the “aperitivo” in a swimming pool in the center of the city, when alternative therapies were just beginning to be available: “L’ONDA DEL BENESSERE”
One fo the most pleasurable events organized by Lucia was a weekly meeting during the summer 2000 with world-wide cultural representatives: Aztechi, Krishna, Tibetan cultures ….were present with dance and music rituals in a scenario regularly dedicated to pop music called Match Music Millennio (1999-2000). Italian press service and public were marvelled by the musical and visual expressions from other worlds and were testimony to a unique event perhaps one of the first of its kind.
