Foto Carlotta CapurroHi,

I am Carlotta Capurro, welcome to WorldWideMuseum!

Currently, I am pursuing a PhD at the Department of History and Art History of Utrecht University (Utrecht, The Netherlands). The PhD is part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN (Innovative Training Network)  programme “CHEurope: Critical Heritage Studies and the Future of Europe – towards an integrated, interdisciplinary and transnational training model in cultural heritage research and management”. The title of my project is Curating Digital Heritage: Engagements with technology and media in European heritage institutions.

I had my bachelor’s degree in Conservation of the Cultural Heritage at the University of Genoa (Genoa, Italy).
In 2009/2010 I spent one year at the Universiteit Gent (Gent, Belgium) where I studied the art of Flemish Primitives and Old Masters and I worked on Infra Red Reflectography techniques.
I had my master’s degree in Art History at the University of Genoa. The work included a virtual museum which has been presented at the 18th IEEE International Conference on Virtual Systems and Multimedia (VSMM2012) in September 2012.
In 2012 I had a three-month internship in the frame of the V-Must mobility programme: I collaborated with Visual Dimension bvba (Oudenaarde, Belgium), a company specialised on virtual 3D reconstruction and interaction with digital heritage. After the internship, I worked at Visual Dimension for about four years on the 3D reconstruction e restoration of heritage.

For more on my background, here’s my CV.
