Sara Petrilli-Jones works on Italian art and architecture from the nineteenth century to the present, with a particular focus on the relationship between politics and visual culture during the Fascist Ventennio. Her research interests include architectural theory and discourses of materials in modern architecture; the fate of Baroque in post-Unification Italy; Italian avant-gardes in Paris; and female protagonists of modern art movements from Futurism to Arte Povera. She holds a B.A. with distinction in History of Art and Italian Literature from Yale College, and has studied at the Università degli Studi di Firenze and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP). Jointly with her Ph.D., she is completing a J.D. at Yale Law School.
