Research Interests

A trained art historian with MAs from the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan and the Warburg Institute in London, Rebecca's current PhD project at the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance of the University of Warwick (funded by the Wolfson Foundation) explores the relationship between cheap print and early modern Italian political life; in particular, it aims to assess the effect of the pervasive distribution and consumption of cheap print in post-Tridentine Bologna on the conditions for the exercise of power targeted necessarily at a broad urban audience. 
She is also interested in the relationship between book and print production, the survival and transmission of printed images, and artists' books, with respect to which she works as a secreteriat for the International Artists' Book Competition fo the Fondazione Torrita di Siena (Italy)
