Pirrone went to the Art Institute in Florence and studied engraving, decorating, sculpture and mosaic. Her passion is to illustrate children's books. She loves to create characters and invent stories for them. She made a few tactile books for blind children. Two of them were awarded by the Italian Federation of the Blind.
