About Lorenzo Calvelli

I am a tenured Lecturer in Ancient History at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. I was a Marie Curie graduate student at University College London and earned a PhD in «History and Archaeology of the Mediterranean countries» thanks to a cotutelle agreement between Ca’ Foscari and the Université Paris X. I was a post-doctoral fellow at the American Academy in Rome, at the Warburg Institute in London, at the Villa I Tatti in Florence (The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies), and at the Centro di Studi e Ricerche sui Diritti Antichi in Pavia. From September to December 2015, I was a visiting research scholar at Princeton University thanks to a fellowship offered by the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies.
My research interests focus on classical and late-antique epigraphy, on architectural spolia and antiquarian collections in Venice and Rome, on early Christianity in the Adriatic region, and on the reception of antiquity. I am the author of numerous scholarly contributions on these topics, among which my book «Cipro e la memoria dell’antico fra Medioevo e Rinascimento» (Venice, 2009). I serve on the Editorial Board of the series «Mediterranean Nexus», published by Brepols. I am a member of AIEGL, BES, ASGLE, and Terra Italia Onlus, on whose Academic Board I sit after my three-year appointment as Secretary General (2013-2015).
