Antongiulio Sorgini, M.A.

Doctoral Fellow

Antongiulio Sorgini is a doctoral candidate at Johns Hopkins University specializing in the history of early modern Italian art. Among his research interests is art’s role in shaping perceptions of place, and his dissertation, entitled “Art and the Making of Loreto,” examines how objects and monuments served to variously define and articulate the social identity of a popular pilgrimage shrine in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Prior to beginning his PhD, he received a BA from Temple University and an MA from Williams College; he also held positions at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and Clark Art Institute.
