Enrico Parlato is full professor of Italian Renaissance and Baroque Art at the Università della Tuscia (Viterbo), where he was hired in 1987. There he has been member of the departments of Foreign Languages, of Preservation of Cultural Heritage, and now DiSTU (Law, Foreign Languages, History, Philosophy), always teaching within the field of early modern art. Member of the board of consultants of the Istituto Nazionale d’Archeologia e Storia dell’arte, correspondent fellow of the Istituto Nazionale di Studi Romani, he has been adjunct professor at the Cornell University (Rome, program), visiting at Dartmouth College (NH), and the University of Lausanne. Starting with his dissertation on Filippino Lippi (Roma “Sapienza”, 1980), and the study years at Columbia University (M. Phil 1985), his research interests have been focused on painting and sculpture of the Roman Quattrocento and their connection with antiquarianism, with specific attention to Filarete and to late 15th Century painting, concentrating to long term aspects of Roman art, with specific attention to continuity between middle- and early-modern ages. The result was expansion of his interests on Medieval topics, such as Umbrian high Medieval painting, on Medieval Latium, and on ritual and liturgical use of images. More recently he studied Cinquecento topics on the ‘axis’ Rome-Venice, with researches on Sebastiano del Piombo, Francesco Marcolini, and book illustration, with contribution on Girolamo Ruscelli, and Lodovico Dolce. In addition he has dealt with painting in Rome between 16th and 17th centuries, of Michelangelo’s ‘heritage’, and with early 19th century painting. Curator of an exhibition on Filippo Lippi’s Madonna di Tarquinia (Rome, palazzo Barberini 2017-18), is now collaborating to a forthcoming exhibit on Pietro Aretino and Renaissance art.
