Afterwards she learned the technique of fresco at the school of Leonetto Tintori of Prato. In 2001 she enrolled in the Accademia di Belle Arti of Rome. She continued in the meantime her plastic and pictorial research, veering towards abstraction: the series Cigarette Box Paintings takes life. With the academic diploma obtained in 2006, the American transfered to Arezzo, where she could live in close contact with the art of Piero della Francesca. Collaborating with her husband Maurizio D’Annibale, light designer, Danielle Villicana began working on the project Villa Margherita a Paradise for Artists in Tuscany and opens, in 2010, a contemporary art gallery in the heart of the city, immediately becoming a favoured meeting place for Italian and foreign artists.
