Curriculum Vitae

Marco Brunetti is a PostDoc Fellow who is working on Renaissance drawings of Roman antiquities and Renaissance topography of Rome. His interests are focused on Roman archaeology and reception studies in Renaissance.
He has studied Classics (BA, 2012), Classical Philology (MA, 2014) and Classical Archaeology (MA, 2015) at the University of Bologna. After his study period at the Post-graduated School of Archaeology and Archival Studies (2016), he became PhD candidate at the IMT-Lucca (2016–2020). In 2020 he defended his PhD dissertation on Renaissance drawings of the Domus Aurea, with a specific focus on the Volta Dorata, the main vault of the Neronian building (Co-Advisors Dr. Marzia Faietti and Prof. Eric M. Moormann).
During his PhD period and afterwards, thanks to Erasmus Traineeships and DAAD fellowship in Berlin (2020), he spent several research periods and internships in Italy and abroad (British Museum, Uffizi Museum, Rijksmuseum, and Kupferstichkabinett of Berlin).
