Chiara Pazzaglia

Chiara Pazzaglia is a master’s student both at the Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, and the University of Pisa. Her research, supervised by Flavio Fergonzi, is concerned with the visual ideology of Fascist headquarters, with a particular focus on the political use of imagery in monumental sculpture and painting. In 2019 she earned her bachelor’s degree with first-class honors in Cultural Heritage Sciences at the University of Pisa. On the topic of her dissertation (“Marino Marini and Monumental Sculpture in the Thirties: The Five Reliefs for Palazzo dell’Arengario in Milan”), Pazzaglia published an article in the journal Studi di scultura in 2019. She is a contributor to the Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, published by Treccani, with entries on Paul Troubetzkoy, Antonio Ugo, Vincenzo Vela, and Dario Viterbo. Pazzaglia is currently spending a semester at the École du Louvre in Paris. Her main fields of interest include art criticism, arts patronage, and the history of sculpture and painting in the late-nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
