Anna Eleanor Signorini

is an Italian art historian and art reporter. Her recent researches concern Art from the Fifteenth century to the contemporary, with a particular interest to the visual language of the sacred in Italy. Her lectures and articles pertain the sacred art pieces commissioned in the Roman history (Guglielmo Sirleto, Ermete Cavalletti, Carlo and Federico Borromeo), and the different iconographies produced for/by religious Orders (Augustinians, Franciscans and Jesuits). During her PhD she analyzed the impact of Madame de Stael's theory of literature and arts studying the re-use of her main character: Corinne (or Italy) between France and Italy in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth century. Her work converged in the translation and introduction of this famous travel novel, a "manifesto" of Romanticism, for Mondadori's edition.
