I am a first-year Ph.D candidate under the supervision of Prof. Anthony D'Elia. I am interested in the rise and dissemination of villeggiatura culture within Renaissance Italy and its effect on the Venetian mainland. In order to describe and understand the significance of this cultural phenomenon that occurred throughout the sixteenth century, I intend to analyze the intellectual and cultural moods of the era.
