PhD Italian Studies
I completed my BA in Science and Technology of Art at the University of Palermo in 2009. Subsequently, I obtained my MA in History of Art cum laude at the University of Siena, in 2012, under the supervision of Prof. Luca Quattrocchi. My thesis focused on an Italo-Hungarian graphic artist - Il “graphikus” Ferenc Pintér (1931-2008). Currently, I am a PhD student at University of Birmingham (as from October 2015) where my research focuses on Italian film posters from 1945 to the 1970s. My research is embedded in the Interdisciplinary Italy, 1900-2020 project headed by Dr Clodagh Brook.
My project is fully funded through a competitive Arts and Humanities Research Council studentship, awarded via the Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership.
