Sara is a PhD student at the University College Cork, in the Faculty of Digital Arts and Humanities.
She completed a master’s degree in Italian Philology and Literature at the University of Udine in 2017, under the supervision of Prof. Neil Harris. Her thesis involved the transcription and analysis of a mid Sixteenth-century manuscript inventory of books, kept inside the Zornale of Francesco de Madiis at the Marciana Library. During her studies, she did an internship at the John Rylands Library of Manchester and one in the Manuscript Department of the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. Between 2017 and 2018, she worked at the Biblioteca Ariostea of Ferrara on a project concerning the Sixteenth-century editions of Ludovico Ariosto. She holds a diploma in Archival, Palaeographical and Diplomatic Studies from the State Archive of Trieste.
As part of the EURONEWS Project, she will focus on the Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-century newsletters coming from Central Europe, held in the Archivio Mediceo del Principato, and investigate the routes and flows of avvisi from this region to Florence.
