Daniele Di Lodovico grew up in Italy and he graduated in 2003 in the University of Perugia with a dissertation on Medieval Art. In 2005 he started a project called “Suitcase” a contemporary art exhibition that traveled in U.S., Italy, Israel, Belgium, Germany, Poland and Denmark, and included more than 110 artists from eleven different countries including France, Holland, Mexico and Japan. In 2006 he started his Master in Italian Studies in the University of Washington (Seattle). After his MA he started his PhD at the University of Washington, specializing in Medieval and Renaissance art. The Dissertation entitled “Revising Devotion: the role of wooden sculptures in affecting painting and devotion in the Late Medieval period in Italy (XII-XV century),” offers a reconsideration of medieval wooden sculptures and their role in affecting devotion, the art production and the social context in the Late Medieval and Renaissance culture. The dissertation focuses on the diffusion and use of these sculptures from the group of the Descent from the Cross to the development of the animated sculptures of Christ from the around 1100 to around 1560. Di Lodovico creates and teaches introductory courses in art and architecture from prehistory through the twentieth century, and intermediate and special topics courses in Medieval and Renaissance Art.
