  • Profile

    I graduated in Archaeology (BA & ReMA), with a minor in museum studies and elective courses at the University of Bologna. During research stays in Italy, I studied the archaeology of the Etruscans, and became more and more interested in their reception inside and outside of Italy. 

    This interest in (archaeological) museums and collections has led to an external PhD-position at the Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM). My project titled Etruscans for all. The perception and reception of the Etruscans in 18th- and 19th-century Northwestern Europe investigates why the interest in the Etruscans emerged in the late 18th- and 19th centuries by studying the earliest Etruscan museum collections in Northwestern Europe. By exploring academic, public and private spheres the reception history of the Etruscans will be revealed, and studied against the background of the wider historical debates that take place in the context of the 19th century.
