She was born in L'Aquila, Italy, in 1993. As an artist, her research encompasses different techniques and languages, including site-specific installation, photography, and video making, despite XR productions being her favourite medium of expression. Di Bonaventura's artistic research investigates human identity in relation to new technologies and the environment in which people feel they belong.
In 2015, her site-specific installation Beating Heart, designed to represent the condition of the Italian city of L'Aquila (destroyed by an earthquake in 2009), was selected for Re-Place: The City Lights Up Again, an art festival supported by UNESCO, in collaboration with the Maxxi Museum's Education Department in Rome.
In 2017, her short film Presence Absence—fully self-produced and created—was selected to be one of the five finalists of the Corti d'Argento award, organized by the National Union of Italian Cinema Journalists, and presented in Europe at the Animatou Festival in Geneva and the Rome Independent Film Festival.
In 2019, she was selected by the Venice Biennale as a director to participate in their training program and develop her interactive VR movie, Vajont, which was then presented during Venice VR Expanded in the 2020 Venice Biennale.
Di Bonaventura has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions and photography and digital art festivals.
