Constructing the Baroque: women artisans on building sites in the seventeenth-century Vatican and Rome Other events...
A public lecture by Professor Nicoletta Marconi, University of Roma Tor Vergata and 2019 Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

The contribution of female artists and craftswomen to the history of construction in early modern Rome forms an understudied part of the development of patronage of the arts and crafts of the period. It reveals another facet to the realization of ambitious social ennobling programs undertaken by papal and noble families of the Roman Curia in the Baroque period.

Nicoletta Marconi is Associate Professor in the History of Architecture at the University of Roma Tor Vergata. Her research explores the architectural and construction history of early modern Rome, with a particular focus on the St. Peterís in Vatican building site, on architectural heritage of the Barberini family and the role of contribution of female artists and craftswomen to the history of construction in early modern Rome. She has contributed to many exhibitions and research projects, as well as published in collections and monographs.

Dr Marconi is a 2019 UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

This lecture is presented by the UWA Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies the Institute of Advanced Studies.
