C.M. Souvenirs

Souvenirs designed and produced in Italy.

Who we are

We are an innovative start-up, entirely dedicated to the development and production of innovative souvenirs.

Despite having started our activity at the beginning of the pandemic we didn’t desist, we persisted in our adventure and in August we launched a souvenir for the European market.

The Founder

Marinella Canonico is a painter, teacher and ceramist who worked for a long time at the Donizetti Theater and at the Carrara Academy of Fine Arts in Bergamo before deciding to dedicate herself to her art full-time. During the course of her artistic career she has experimented with and mastered multiple techniques and styles starting with porcelain painting and later adding to her repertoire clay modelling, silk painting, oil painting, enameling on metal and watercolor painting. During the years she participated in art exhibitions as well as national and international competitions collecting innumerable awards.

From the union of art, tourism and the hobby of collecting she had the idea of creating a souvenir that would draw inspiration from the euro banknotes and combine freehand drawing with the most modern technologies. It was the birth of CM ART: a project with which she hopes to spread a different kind of souvenir all over Europe.

Marinella personally draws every subject, taking advantage of her experience and creativity to best satisfy the needs of each and every client.
