Ciaghi was born in Rovereto in the province of Trento, situated in the north east of Italy. In collaboration with the Handworkers Association of the province of Trento, she has worked as decorator on both glass and wood. She is also a specialist in the decoration of Tyrolean style furniture -- painting scenes of alpine fauna and landscapes. These she also paints on wooden plates known as "scheibenschiessen." Her interest in painting has encouraged her to experiment with the application of various techniques, such as airbrush on paper and textiles. After ten years experience in the field of handcrafts, which has developed and matured her talent, she now focuses on representing reality in a more detailed way, researching the use of color with greater delicacy and accuracy.
