Marisa Merz was an Italian sculptor and wife of artist Mario Merz. She was born in 1926 in Turin, Italy, where she lived until the end of her life in 2019.

Marisa Merz began her career in 1966 when she exhibited in her Turin studio sculptures made from aluminium sheets: spiral structures that were mobile and irregular and that opposed a metaphoric, enigmatic, and airy image to the rigours of Minimalism.
