Ph.D. Institution

University of Florence, Italy


I hold a Ph.D. in Early Modern History from the University of Florence (2005). I gained a degree in Humanities at the University of Rome ‘La Sapienza’ (1995), a post- graduate Specialisation Diploma in Medieval and Early Modern Art History at the same University (2001), and a masters in Management and Communication of Cultural Heritage at Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa (1999). I have also been a fellow at the Istituto Italiano di Studi Storici ‘Benedetto Croce’ in Naples (2002-2004).
My first research areas have been of art patronage in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries Italy, paying attention to its gendered practices and the patterns of female representation in the art market.
My Ph.D. dissertation deals with the Accademia dei Lincei, in the early seventeenth century Rome, its publishing policy and relationships with the papal Curia and court, as well as its cultural networks in Italy and across the Alps.
I am currently working on cultural communication between Rome and the German world, and continuity and change in the Republic of Letters, during the first three decades of the seventeenth century. My aim is a fully-fledged inquiry into the norms and practices of social communication in Central and Southern Europe, focusing on the role as cultural brokers played by Germans settled in Rome.
