From DM

Jump to: navigation, search

Curator of Manuscripts and Rare Books at the Capitulary Library of Vercelli (Italy). My background is in medieval manuscripts and early printed books with particular interest in bookbindings and watermarks. I hold a Second Level Master's Degree in librarianship from the University of Siena, and I am finishing my specialization as librarian at the University of Rome 'La Sapienza'. I was recently awarded a short-term fellowship at the Newberry Library, Chicago, to study early bookbindings of incunabula in the John M. Wing Collection. I am currently working, as project manager, on a database of bookbindings in libraries of Piedmontese Region for the Superintendence, and I am involved in the digitization and multi-spectral analysis project of the capitulary manuscripts. I would like to work with the board in order to develop the DM journal in the growing field of digital humanities, to organize conferences and workshops. This would allow me to be part of a academic community committed to the knowledge of medieval resources.
