In history, Pentesilea is a queen, a warrior, an invisible city, an asteroid and a symphony.
Here, Pentesilea is an artistic project, nurtured for years and left to settle before coming out of the closet.
Pentesilea (Valentina Mignogna) is a performer, songwriter, author and composer.
Valentina was born in Rome and she moved to Milan when she was 20.
In 2010, she graduated at the “Paolo Grassi” Dramatic Arts Academy in Milan and started her work as an actress. During the same years, she started to work in music, especially in song-writing thanks to her professional experience as singer and composer.
