Elisabetta Rattalino is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Faculty of Design and Art of the Free University of Bolzano, where she researches collaborations between artists, designers and scientists ('Scientific Visualisations: Impact on Practice') and teaches 'Theories and Languages of Visual Communication'.
Elisabetta holds a PhD in Art History from the University of St Andrews (Scotland, 2018). Her thesis, titled 'The Seasons in the City. Artists and Rural Worlds in the Era of Calvino and Pasolini', examined constructions of rurality in 1970s Italy through the experimental rural-themed artworks and design projects by Gianfranco Baruchello, Mirella Bentivoglio, Claudio Costa, Piero Gilardi, Maria Lai, Pino Pascali, Giuseppe Penone, and Superstudio. Elisabetta’s research has been presented internationally (i.e. New York - CAA Annual Conference, 2019; Quebec City - Université Téluq, 2019; University of Cork - Migration, Memory and Material Culture, 2018; University of Florence - Cross-Disciplinary Urban Space Conference, 2018) and supported by CIMA - Centre for Italian Modern Art (New York, 2018), Margaret and Alfred Forrest Trust (Edinburgh, 2014-2016) and the Master dei Talenti della Società Civile (Turin, 2013).
Prior to her PhD, Elisabetta obtained a 'Master in Landscape, Art and Culture Management' from the Trentino School of Management (Trento, 2011), an MA in 'Storia dell’arte' from the University of Urbino (2010) and a BA in 'Scienze dei Beni Culturali' from the University of Turino (2007). Since 2010, Elisabetta has been collaborating with artists and organisations in the field of socially-engaged arts both in Italy (i.e. Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto, Biella; Kaninchenhaus, Turin; BAU, Bolzano) and in Scotland (Deveron Projects).
