Giacomo Guazzini, Ph.D.
Giacomo Guazzini earned his MA from the University of Florence (2011) and his PhD from the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa (2017) with the dissertation Giotto e la Basilica di Sant'Antonio a Padova. His research led to the discovery of a previously unknown frescoed chapel by Giotto preserved inside the Basilica of Padua (Un nuovo Giotto al Santo di Padova: la cappella della Madonna Mora, in: Nuovi Studi, 2015). He participated in the exhibition Piero della Francesca in America, held at the Frick Collection of New York (2013) and co-curated the exhibition Due pittori tardogotici per Pistoia: Mariotto di Nardo e Rossello di Jacopo Franchi, promoted by the Civic Museum of Pistoia (2015). His publications deal with Giotto's activity in Padua and 13th-15th-century art in Pistoia and Sansepolcro. Since May 2018 he has been postdoctoral fellow at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz (directorship Alessandro Nova), with the project Mira marmora depicta: the origin, development and significance of fictive marble decoration from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance.
