Martina Conti developed her research in the performance field, basing her work on the language of choreography, dance and action in movement as creative and gathering means.

She lives and works in San Marino and London. In 2019, the MA*GA Museum in Gallarate and San Marino National Gallery organised a monographic exhibition of her work.
Martina collaborated with Little Constellation, a network devoted to Contemporary Art in geo-cultural micro-areas and small European States and took part in A Natural Oasis, a biennial research project dedicated to the relationship between artistic practice and geographic marginalities.
