  • Video 4 Impact – HUMS – 2023

I received my undergraduate degree from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, writing an iconographical study of the Mannerist Sacro Bosco of Bomarzo. I was then awarded a master’s degree in Eighteenth Century Studies from the University of Sheffield with a prize-winning dissertation on political women’s dress in Revolutionary Paris. Between 2016 and 2020, I completed a PhD in History at the University of Cambridge (St John’s College), where my project on female equestrian culture in seventeenth-century France was funded by the AHRC and the Cambridge Trust. I since held fellowships with the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice, the Society for Renaissance Studies, the Warburg Institute, the Harvard Center for Italian Renaissance Studies and the Herzog August Bibliothek. In 2021, I collaborated with the Refashioning the Renaissance ERC-funded project at Aalto University.

At Cambridge, I taught various History papers including ‘European History, 1450–1760’, ‘Material Culture in the Early Modern World’ and ‘Historical Argument and Practice’. In March 2022, I was a guest lecturer for the ‘Women in Western Culture’ paper at Florida State University International Programs.
