Giancarlo Fiorenza

Giancarlo Fiorenza joined the Department of Art and Design in 2008. His research focuses on the production and reception of myth and antiquity in the Renaissance. His book, Dosso Dossi: Paintings of Myth, Magic, and the Antique, was published by the Pennsylvania State University Press in 2008. He has also published articles and reviews in The Art Bulletin, Renaissance Quarterly, I Tatti Studies, and Modern Language Notes. Recently, he co-edited with Sean Roberts and Timothy McCall a volume entitled: Visual Cultures of Secrecy in Early Modern Europe (Truman State University Press, 2013).

Professor Fiorenza received his Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University and has worked in both the museum and academic fields, holding curatorial positions at the Toledo Museum of Art (Ohio) and the Georgia Museum of Art, as well as teaching positions at the University of Toronto and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Currently he is working on the rise of mythological painting in sixteenth-century Antwerp, and on the lively cross fertilization of the arts and humanist culture in Renaissance Bologna, with a focus on the early mythological engravings of Marcantonio Raimondi.
