Valentina Turtur was born in Rome (Italy) in 1988, her background is really wide as she's been through Music and Dance classes as well as her studies in art were taking place.
She graduated in Architecture and Furnishing at the “Mario Mafai” Artistic High School (where she developed her interest in Architecture and Art in general) and trained in Set Design at the Rome Academy of Fine Art; when she realised to be a Set Designer was the right way to conciliate her wide interests in all of the arts.
In 2014 she moved to London to pursue her career as Set Designer where she started to cooperate with different Theatre and TV productions completing her working profile.
In 2016 she designed Treasure Island for Iris Theatre at the St' Paul's Church in Covent Garden, which has won the Offie Award 2017 as Best Production for Young People (8+).

"Excellent Sets." - The Stage
"It's a fun set, and this is where you begin to feel part of the piece."
"The set is incredible and I take my (pirate’s) hat off to Valentina Turtur for her imagination and vision that really brings this magical production to life." - WestEndWilma
She was also awarded Winner of Excellence in Set Design Fall 2016 at the Depth of Field Int. Film Festival with Scriptorium for LittleDragons Films, Direction by Colin Ramsay.
