I am a first-year PhD candidate in History and Philosophy of Science at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, and my supervisor is Dr Dániel Margócsy. I completed my undergraduate and master’s degrees at Ca’ Foscari University in Venice, where I majored in Philosophy in 2021. My PhD project focuses on the transmission and reception of Cornelius Celsus’ De medicina from late antiquity to the early modern age. This project mainly addresses the reading and writing practices connected to the reception of De medicina in the literary production of Benedictine monks, Renaissance humanists, and early modern physicians, but my interests lie at the intersection of intellectual history and material studies. My research will also explore the circulation of early modern books, the role of translation movements from Latin to vernacular languages, and the interaction of medical humanism with the reappraisal of operative knowledge in early modern medicine.
