  2. 2. 2www.fulbright.it Fulbright - Italy Newsletter Issue 4, October 2009 Storing Sanctity: Sacristy Reliquary Cupboards in Late Medieval and Renaissance Italy - I will conduct research for my doctoral dissertation on late medieval and Renaissance reliquary cupboards in the Veneto. Large collections of valuable relics and reliquaries were often stored safely within wall-mounted cupboards in the sacristy that were enhanced by complex visual programs carried out in painting, sculpture and intarsia. My project addresses the development, iconography and function of this previously neglected aspect of the sacred environment by examining the artistic, ritual and devotional significance of Trecento and Quattrocento reliquary cupboards. Ashley Jane Elston from University of Kansas to Università degli Studi di Padova History of Art US Graduate Students 2009-2010 Arts The Copyist and the Copied: Nicolas Poussin in Seventeenth-Century Rome - The overarching goal of my research is to challenge the processing of Nicolas Poussin’s image by seventeenth-century art academies through an analysis of the nature of imitation in Baroque Rome. This involves three phases of research: gaining further knowledge of Poussin as a copyist, questioning how Poussin evolved into an artist that is copied, and culminating with the relationship between those copies in Rome and their legacy in the French academic tradition. Kathryn Farrar from University of California, Irvine to Académie de France à Rome Art History Friars in the City: Mendicant Architecture and Pious Practice in Medieval Verona (c. 1220-c. 1375) - My project examines how the mendicant churches of Verona responded to the social, economic, and religious structures of the medieval city. I explore how these sites were shaped by local pressures and circumstances, such as population distribution, economic practices, religious rituals, and urbanization. In doing so, I offer a new reading of Verona’s mendicant convents as part of a social process, proposing that these churches and their decoration reflect an intimate link between the friars and local religious and socio- economic institutions (such as the commune, the confraternity, and the merchant class). Meagan Green Labunski from Duke University, North Carolina to Università degli Studi di Padova Art/Architectural History The Sala Bologna in the Vatican Palace: Art and Astronomy in Counter-Reformation Rome - This dissertation will examine the fresco decoration of Gregory XIII’s Sala Bologna painted in the Vatican Palace in 1575 as a case study for reassessing the relationship between art, science, and spirituality in early modern Italy. Through the on-site examination of relevant imagery and archival documents, this project will reconcile a worldview that embraced science and religion as an indissoluble whole, but which we today have divided into separate enterprises. Emily Ann Urban from Rutgers University, New Jersey to Università degli Studi di Roma ‘Tor Vergata’ Art/Architectural History Tintoretto’s San Marco Painting Cycle - The project comprises a study into the non-verbal political discourse of a cycle of five paintings dating from the mid to late sixteenth-century commissioned by the Scuola Grande di San Marco from the flamboyantly native painter Tintoretto.The project will include an examination of how citizens occupying a strange position both inside and outside the government collaborated with an artist to construct a particular definition of Venice, its people, and their expectations of the miraculous.

  3. 3. 3www.fulbright.it Fulbright - Italy Newsletter Issue 4, October 2009 Keyboard Seconda Prattica in the Copper- Engraved Toccatas of Girolamo Frescobaldi - My project examines the copper-engraving publication of Frescobaldi’s toccatas, issued in seven editions (1615-1637) by Nicolò Borboni. The florid passagework and daring harmonic dissonances of this opus epitomize the avant- garde musical idiom of the seconda pratica emerging in the seicento. Intended to arouse the affections, the revolutionary notational language of these toccatas exploits the expressive potential of engraving. With movable type, the composer/printer is greatly restricted, whereas with engraving anything notated in manuscript form may be reproduced identically. To consider how engraving impacted the transmission and dissemination of Baroque stylistic features, not adequately represented in typography, I analyze these toccatas’ transmission comparing them to manuscript and typographic transmissions of other Frescobaldi toccatas. Michael James Eisenberg from The City University of New York Graduate Center to Biblioteca Casanatense Library, Roma Music Affinities and Contrasts: Researching and Performing Italian Baroque and Modern Cello - Through studying and performing the solo cello works originating in 17th C. Italy, and their modern Italian counterparts, I will explore ways in which these compositions spawn, adhere to, or defy trends, and influence the form and use of the cello. In Como, I will study with celebrated cellist baroque Paolo Beschi and study works by modern composers, such as Berio, Sciarrino, and Sollima, who have themselves re-organized baroque-contemporary connections. Elinor Frey from McGill University, Montréal, Canada to Conservatorio di Musica “G.Verdi”, Como Musical Instrument Training - Cello An Untraditional Career Path: Studying Piccolo and Opera Repertoire - I plan to study at the L’Accademia Italiana Del Flauto in Rome, Italy. My concentrations will be the solo baroque piccolo repertoire and orchestral opera repertoire while working with specialists such as Nicola Mazzanti. I will frequent productions at the Teatro Dell’Opera di Roma. And I will collaborate with students at the Conservatorio Santa Cecilia to perform a program of three Vivaldi piccolo concertos with accompaniment at a series of venues in Italy. Bianca Rose Garcia from New England Conservatory, Massachusetts to L’Accademia Italiana Del Flauto, Rome Musical Instrument Training - Piccolo Tracing Voices: Poetic Anthologies and the Transmission of Trecento Song - Secular music-making in medieval Florence was an interdisciplinary endeavor. Music was created by composers who were at the same time poets, clerics, intellectuals, and even merchants. The product of a multi-faceted cultural environment, Trecento song relies on the interplay between music and poetry to create meaning. My project seeks to bridge disciplinary boundaries between music and literature, focusing on the literary identity of song texts through an analysis of their placement in text-only poetic manuscripts.

  4. 4. 4www.fulbright.it Fulbright - Italy Newsletter Issue 4, October 2009 A Woman Scorned: Honoring the Revenge Lament in Early Modern Italy “Heaven has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn’d, Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman Scorned.” William Congreve in The Mourning Bride of 1697 (III/i) - Seventeenth- centurylamentsofthescornedwomanexpressed the injustice and dishonor of abandonment with giusto sdegno: a desire – and need – for revenge. Numerous, diverse performance venues for musical settings provided powerful, aggressive forums that enacted the battle of the sexes, afforded a crucial and visible mode for debates about female honor, and gave voice to the dangers of broken faith within the tumultuous social, political, and religious context of early- modern Italy. Melissa Ann Reilly from University of Chicago, Illinois to Università di Bologna; Università degli Studi di Pavia, Cremona Musicology Fishing for Hope: Social Sculpture and Sicilian Boat Craft - I believe in the possibility of using the arts as a tool that can be implemented within communities to foster discussion and communication. I will travel to Italy, to the city of Palermo for three main reasons: to study Sicilian boat craft, conduct weekly art workshops for disadvantaged children, and make a large-scale sculpture that involves the children from the workshops, while also using visual vocabulary from my research. Jeremiah Hulsebos-Spofford from University of Illinois at Chicago to Accademia di Belle Arti di Palermo Sculpture Dissecting the Holy: Anatomy and Sanctity in Early Modern Italy - Focusing on the autopsies performed on saints during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries in Italy, this work will investigate the connection between religious belief and biological theories during the early modern period. Topics to be considered include physicians understandings of the link between spirituality and anatomy, the means by which sanctity was ‘proven’ to Catholic and Protestant contemporaries, the reception of medical theories of the body by lay people, and the ways in which doctors used the Church to promote their career. Bradford Albert Bouley from Stanford University, California to Università degli Studi di Roma “La Sapienza” Cultural and Intellectual History Arts Humanities Examination of Technique and Culture through Apprenticeship - As a sculptor, I am interested in the ineffable, the arcane and the esoteric aspects of the glass craft tradition. The goal of my project is to fully immerse myself into the Venetian glass-factory tradition, to study the history of the Venetian glass industry, and to experience and observe the tacit knowledge of the glass artisans that has been a part of a lineage that can be traced to the Middle Ages. I will partake in a formal apprenticeship in a factory with the glass master, Pino Signoretto. Stefanie Ann Pender from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence to Apprenticeship with maestro Pino Signoretto, Murano Sculpture Narrative Theater in Italy: Staging Culture for the Masses - Amidst intense socio-political turmoil from both the extreme left and right in late 1970s Italy, an innovative art form emerged that led to the scrutiny of those events for ideological discourse amongst the people. The examination of this art form, critically named “narrative theater” is not only significant for its interdisciplinary potential bridging Italian Studies with Theater Studies, but it engages a much broader discourse of how modern media can reshape notions of history. Juliet Fara Guzzetta from University of Michigan to DAMS, Università di Bologna Theatre Studies
  5. 5. 5www.fulbright.it Fulbright - Italy Newsletter Issue 4, October 2009 Convent Culture and Cloistered Women in Early Modern Venice - In Renaissance Venice, convents were, at once, places of spiritual refuge and reflection, sources of civic pride, strongholds of intellectual enlightenment, and passageways to imprisonment and submission. Women who entered convents were as diverse as the convents themselves—young, old, wealthy, poor, devout, impious, modest, and ostentatious. While some women actively sought cloistered lives, others were forced into the commitment. My research uses convent chronicles and administrative documents to examine convent culture and to discern the influences of post- Tridentine confinement on the lives of Venetian convent women Courtney Ann Caruso from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri to Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia Cultural and Intellectual History Amelia Rosselli: Across Language - My Fulbright project is an examination of the work of the multilingual poet Amelia Rosselli (1930- 1996) at the Centro Manoscritti in Pavia and the Fondo Amelia Rosselli in Viterbo. Best known for her innovative Italian poetry, Rosselli also wrote in English and engaged with British and American poetics as a poet, critic and translator. By working in her archives I plan to trace this aesthetic hybridity and highlight the importance of her unique voice for an English readership. Diana C. Thow from University of Iowa to Fondo Amelia Rosselli, Viterbo; Centro Manoscritti di Pavia Language and Literature Humanities Sciences Translational Neuroengineering - My project focuses on translating the in-vitro electrophysiology research conducted by the Neuroengineering and Bio-nanoTechnologies (NBT) Group to more clinically relevant models. NBT’s previous work on neuroplasticity has important implications for stroke recovery and the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, but it has not yet been tested in in-vivo models. The demonstration of these electrophysiological principles in in-vivo models would be a huge step towards the development of therapies based on this technology Peter Ricci Pellegrino from University of Iowa to Università degli Studi di Genova Engineering Creating a Support Network for Italian Parents with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children - I am dedicating my Fulbright grant period to research how parents and hearing health professionals are serving Deaf children. It is my hope to learn where and what resources are lacking, and to work with others to strengthen both healthcare and educational resources (e.g., parent-mentoring program and education with mainstream programs) for families and their deaf and hard-of-hearing children, and the professionals who serve them. With better resources, families and health professionals are empowered to make better decisions in raising their Deaf children successfully.

  6. 6. 6www.fulbright.it Fulbright - Italy Newsletter Issue 4, October 2009 Sciences The effects of transglutaminase on the immune response of Celiac Disease - I will study the ability of an enzyme called, transglutaminase, to successfully suppress the specific immune response triggered by gluten in patients with a genetic condition called, Celiac disease (gluten sensitivity). The effects of transglutaminase in vivo will be investigated with transgenic mice that express Celiac disease. If successful, this enzyme treatment could permit consumption of gluten-containing products by Celiac patients without the harmful symptoms commonly linked with the disease. Kathryne Boucher Schwartz from Mount Holyoke College, Massachusetts to Istituto di Scienze dell’Alimentazione, CNR, Avellino Biology Italy: Food, Culture, and Health - During my doctoral work in Preventive Medicine, I discovered a striking disconnect between the fields of nutrition science and gastronomy, the art and science of good eating. As a Fulbright scholar, I will work to integrate these two disciplines, which I believe is an imperative step in preventing chronic disease. Considering that Italy is a global leader in the field of gastronomy, I will explore the protective health effects of gastronomy in Italian culture. Emily Ventura from University of Southern California to Università degli Studi di Scienze Gastronomiche, Colorno Public Health Redefining community: Interplay of immigration, community, identity and culture in Italy - Given the recent influx of immigrants to Italy, Italians are faced with the need to redefine their conceptions of nationalism, identity and community. My project seeks to investigate how Italy’s changing cultural climate is shaping and re-defining conceptions of community, and how this complex process links to identity and nationalism. It will also examine the practical side of these insights and what they mean for efforts aimed at integrating immigrants. Clelia Anna Mannino from University of Minnesota to Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Milano Psychology Social Sciences Larinum: A case study for the spread of Roman culture - I will study the settlement patterns, major monuments, and inscriptions from the area around Larinum, in order to investigate how they reflect the processes of cultural change that occurred at this site from the fourth to first centuries BCE. In this period, Larinum transitioned from being a non-Roman capital to being a Roman municipium. My project involves viewing artifacts at Larinum, conducting library research in Rome, and meeting with scholars from Perugia who study Larinum. Elizabeth Carol Robinson from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to Università degli Studi di Perugia Archeology Can a Culture’s Passion for Quality Food become a Solution for World Hunger? - With impending population increases, skyrocketing rates of disease, poverty, and hunger, and growing political unrest in the third world, the goal of access to good, clean and fair food through ensured food sovereignty and security seems evermore impossible. As such, I will examine to what extent, if any, the Italian food and agriculture industry would serve as an effective, Slow Food model for the creation of sustainable and sovereign food and agriculture systems throughout the third world.

  8. 8. 8www.fulbright.it Fulbright - Italy Newsletter Issue 4, October 2009 I cannot imagine a more outstanding opportunity for cultural immersion and academic development than the Italian Fulbright experience. The program’s accommodating structure and emphasis on cultural exchange provide full occasion to absorb an extraordinary amount of information while enjoying the Italian way of life.The nine months I spent in the small town of Bra, in the Piedmont, will remain a defining moment in my development as a leader and drive my dedication and desire to use this newly acquired knowledge back in the United States. Italy is a country rich in agricultural and cultural heritage, yet while we enjoy Italian food in the US, we rarely consider its past. Having grown up on a farm and after studying French and Italian at Princeton, I set out to study one component of Italian food and agriculture that would teach me about the country, its cuisine, and how these two entities support Italian agriculture: cheese. For nine months, I lived in the Piedmont and traveled all around the county to visit farmers, work in aging caves, and see distribution facilities to study Italian cheese. Cheese is an ideal part of the Italian system for sustainable food and agriculture because its production is a way in which small farmers all over the peninsula can produce a product, using centuries-old traditions, that can be aged and sold around the world. By spending time with farmers, their cows, sheep, and goats, their vendors, and their consumers, I saw firsthand how famous cheeses such as Castelmagno, Grana Padano, Provolone, Ragusano, Parmigiano Reggiano, Gorgonzola, and even Bitto were produced. For me, the Fulbright experience was as much about studying the past as it was thinking about the future, in the context of the daily actions of eating. Food acts as the underpinning of a culture – we develop relationships by sitting down to a meal and we solidify traditions by producing the same products with specific agricultural methods over centuries of civilization. As students, we are unbelievably fortunate that so strong a program for cultural exchange exists, and I would like to speak on the behalf of Fulbright scholars to thank the Commission for creating and sustaining this opportunity for us. by Kathryn Andersen (2008-2009 U.S. Graduate) The Development of DOP Cheeses in Italy: Studying Sustainable Food and Gastronomic Culture Fulbrighter Story
  9. 9. 9www.fulbright.it Fulbright - Italy Newsletter Issue 4, October 2009 I spent the 2008-2009 Fulbright term in Florence, Italy, developing 3 series of paintings. For my first series, (2 paintings are depicted in the images “Saturnia”, to the right, and “La Mola”, below) I traveled to various outdoor, natural, sulfuric springs throughoutItalytodocumentviaphotographs and drawings how people preserve the tradition of using these baths for their healing qualities. I used my documentation to make paintings in my studio in Florence. Two months following my return to America, I showed paintings from my bathing series as well as my last body of work I made in Italy, concerning rituals in the Brazilian martial art, capoeira, at Linda Warren Gallery in Chicago. My stay in Italy definitely provided me with many challenges and surprises which allowed me to make unexpected developments in my work and to grow in many different ways. I am still sorting through many hours of film footage, thousands of photos, and many ideas which I will continue to use in my current work.
