Flavia Crisciotti is a Ph.D. candidate, specializing in the history of twentieth-century architecture and exhibitions. Her dissertation project, under the supervision of Professors Andres Lepik (Technische Universität München) and Mari Lending (AHO), examines how the Old Master paintings were mounted by architects in Italy during the Interwar period to the 1960s. Focusing on Antonello da Messina’s and Giovanni Bellini’s exhibitions, it considers the modernist reframing in light of discourse on ornament, preservation practices, and material science.
Crisciotti is the recipient of several fellowships that include funding from the German Academic Scholarship for Dissertation Research (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). In 2015, she received a diploma in architecture from Sapienza Università di Roma in cooperation with the Technische Universität München.
