Italian Art, Collections, Digital Heritage

Flavia De Nicola, Early Moderna and Renaissance art historian

This is Flavia De Nicola, Italian art historian now involved as curatorial intern at the Department of 15th-16th centuries Art of the Vatican Museums and in University of Rome “La Sapienza” life as a tutor for the students attending the chair in Museology and Art Criticism and Restoration.

At the same university, I obtained my master’s degree cum laude in Early Modern Art History in 2018 with an experimental thesis on Michelangelo Buonarroti’s early activity in Rome and the patronage of Raffaele Riario and Jacopo Galli. I also graduated cum laude in Cultural Heritage studies in 2012 with an experimental thesis dealing with Michelangelo’s fresco painting technique at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”.

I’m fascinated by the history of collecting and my main interest is the curation of museum collections. I had thus the opportunity to be selected and to attend the international museology seminar by the Ecole du Louvre: “Knowledge and circulation of museum collections : Inventory and documentation procedures” in Paris, Bordeaux, Versailles in 2012.

I’m currently carrying on my researches on the history of antiquities collecting and Renaissance art production in Rome. Moreover, I’m enhancing my experiences sharing Italian cultural heritage and art history through the new digital media, curating the art project Milestone Rome.
