The problem of Roman copies: a transatlantic dissent
I was born in Florence in 1950. I studied Greek and Roman archaeology, Social anthropology and Italian literature in Basel and Munich, receiving my Ph.D. in Basel (1975). For more than ten years I was a curator in the Antikenmuseum in Berlin (West). In 1992, I moved from museum to university, teaching first in Freiburg and then, from 1998 to 2007, at the Ludwig-Maximilian-Universität in Munich. From 2007 to 2018 I served as rector of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin - Institute of Advanced Study, where I still hold the position of Permanent Fellow.
