Dario Donetti, Ph.D. Arch.

Associate Scholar

Dario Donetti holds an M.Arch. from the Università degli Studi di Firenze (2008) and a Ph.D. from the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa (2016) and is currently assistant professor of architectural history at the University of Verona. Previously, he served as a fellow and assistant at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz (2013-2019), a research associate at the Italian Academy of Columbia University (2017), and a collegiate assistant professor at the University of Chicago (2019-2022). The primary goal of his research is to understand the interdependence between draftsmanship and architectural production, with a focus on issues of authorship and materiality. Among the results of his studies are the exhibition catalog Giuliano da Sangallo: Disegni degli Uffizi (Giunti: 2017, coauthored with Sabine Frommel and Marzia Faietti) and the monograph Francesco da Sangallo e l’identità dell’architettura toscana (Officina Libraria: 2020). Donetti is also the editor of the volumes Architecture and Dystopia (Actar: 2019), Building with Paper: The Materiality of Renaissance Architectural Drawings (Brepols: 2021, with Cara Rachele), and Viaggio nel Nord. Studi di cultura visiva in onore di Alessandro Nova (CentroDi: 2022, with Hana Gründler and Mandy Richter).
