Matilde Minauro


Matilde Minauro is a photographer based in Italy. 

Introduced to photography through the work and influence of her grandfather, she owned her first camera at age 8.

Her studies in architecture influence her photographic style significantly, and this is evident in her use of lines and light as expressive languages.

What are your pronouns?


What inspires your creative practice?

I always try to use the lens not only to frame the image, but to give it a soul, to translate everything into a poetic composition. 

I like to think that my portfolio is a secret corner of interiority, a collection of quiet poems that tell a story of almost impalpable sensations. 

A story that only light can delicately paint in every detail.

What does scent mean to you?

Our scent is the best way to tell about ourselves and the only key to memories. It is a poem that delicately reveals the mystery of our essence.

Tell us about your favorite Sigil perfume.

I do have two favorites: Anima Mundi & Amor Fati.

Anima Mundi is a very sensual essence and it’s like a warm hug. And I feel like the feminine element is more evident in this fragrance. 

Amor Fati is fresh and powdery and in this one the feminine and masculine elements are perfectly mixed adding mystery and magic to this fragrance. 

What sound or song do they evoke?

Anima Mundi for me is definitely a jazz song. 

Amor fati, a solo on piano.
