Elisabetta Cunsolo teaches art history at the Dickinson College Center in Bologna. At E.C.Co., she offers a course on Bolognese art between the fourteenth and the seventeenth centuries, in which she takes students to various churches, palaces, and museums to study the works of art in their original settings. After a Master degree in Art History at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan, during which she specialized in the study and cataloging of Italian prints and drawings, she received her doctorate in art history from the University of Bologna in 2004. Her current research focuses on the study of the sixteenth and seventeenth-century medical book illustration, and on the history of the art and culture of Bologna during the Renaissance. She has also worked as the assistant curator and project manager for the cataloging and digitization projects of the Fototeca Berenson at Villa I Tatti, The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies in Florence.
