Research interests

My interests in the field of book history include issues related to production, circulation and consumption. In the frame of the RICI program, a research focused on sixteenth century monastic libraries, I also developed an interest towards the history of censorship in Renaissance and Baroque Italy, while also delving into historical bibliography and digital humanities. I typically aim to merge material history with social and cultural studies. More recently, within the EMoBookTrade Project I started investigating the professional activity of Venetian bookseller and publisher Bernardo di Bernardo Giunti. In doing so, I am also surveying book prices in late Renaissance Europe.
