Liverpool University Press is delighted to announce that Professor Fabrizio Nevola is joining Exeter Studies in Medieval Europe as a series editor.
Fabrizio Nevola is Professor of Art History and Visual Culture at the University of Exeter, and Director of the Centre for Early Modern Studies at Exeter. He has held research fellowships at the University of Warwick, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, the Medici Archive Project, and Harvard University’s Villa I Tatti in Florence. His book, Siena: Constructing the Renaissance City was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects, Sir Nikolaus Pevsner International Book Award for Architecture. Nevola’s recent work includes Hidden Florence, a digital humanities collaboration with industry-leaders in GPS-triggered city audio tours that created a mobile phone App guide to Renaissance Florence (published 2014; updates 2016).
Fellow series editors Professor Yolanda Plumley, Professor Oliver Creighton and Professor Anthony Musson said ‘Fabrizio is a leading international specialist on late medieval and Early Modern art history and visual culture, and has published extensively on urban spaces, palaces and households in Italy and on the ritual use of public spaces, and urban identity, and is currently researching city streets as social spaces and urban iconography. He will bring invaluable experience and expertise to the series, especially as we develop major strands in the areas of material culture and the environment, and on the arts and society.’
Exeter Studies in Medieval Europe explores the history of societies, culture, the arts and the environment in the Middle Ages.

It includes three major strands:
