Personal profile

Overview

Guido Rebecchini read History of Art at the Università degli Studi di Roma “La Sapienza”, before going to the Università degli Studi di Siena, where he took a MA on the ‘Tradizione dell’Antico nel Medioevo e nel Rinascimento’. In 2000, he obtained his PhD at the Warburg Institute and has subsequently taught at the Università di Siena from 2001 until 2009 and at the New York University and Syracuse University study-abroad centres in Florence in the years 2010-2012. Guido joined The Courtauld Institute of Art in Autumn 2013 as Lecturer in Sixteenth-Century Southern European Art.

One strand of his research is focussed on the court of Mantua in the first half of the sixteenth century, especially on patronage and collecting. Related to this, is an ongoing interest in the figure, working methods and artistic output of Giulio Romano.

Outside Mantua, another strand of Guido’s research concerns the transition of Florence from a republican government to a duchy in the 1530s, and for what this has meant for the arts. In particular, he has focussed his research on Cardinal Ippolito de’ Medici and his cousin Alessandro de’ Medici, on their political and related artistic strategies, and cultural politics in general.

He is currently working on urbanism and the visual culture in Rome during the pontificate of Paul III (1534-1549) for a book-length project.
