Short Bio

Graduated from the Specialist in Cultural Anthropology and Ethnology in 2011, with a thesis result of a fieldwork research in argentinian Chaco among women of wichì ethnic group. My interests range from material culture, to the anthropology of art, the anthropology of women  and the cultures of patrimonialization among indigenous cultures. My current research is about museum anthropology and it focuses over the life and the collection of Guido Boggiani, which is placed in two italian museums: Museum of Anthropology of Firenze and Museo Prehistoric and Ethnographic "Pigorini" in Rome. Particularly I'm interested in feathered art, trying  firstly to comprehend the web of symbols and meanings among the indigenous art, and then the life of this kind of objects, betweeen the colonial history and patrimonialization in the museum.
