Salvadori, Sharon

Title/s:  Adjunct Professor



Dr. Salvadori received her PhD in the history of art from the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University in 2002, specializing in both the Roman and medieval periods. Her main interest is in the original socio-political and religious function and meaning of both public and private artworks. Her scholarly research currently focuses on religious imagery and the representation of gender in the funerary art of late antiquity. Born to an Italian father and a U.S. mother, she was raised in Rome and in 1995, after completing her BA and her graduate coursework in the U.S., returned to the city, where she has lived ever since.
