Francesco de Angelis is associate professor of Roman art and archaeology at Columbia University. Before coming to New York, he has worked at the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut in Rome and at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa. He has been the recipient of a two-year fellowship from the Getty Research Institute and of a Humboldt fellowship in Heidelberg. His research interests touch upon various aspects of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman art and architecture, among which: the relation between visual evidence and written texts; mythological images and their contexts; the role of monuments in the transmission of cultural memory and identity; the architecture and topography of justice in the Roman world; the reception of the
classical past in modern scholarship. His approach lays strong emphasis on intercultural influences and on the value of cross-cultural comparisons.
