Contact Miss Elisabetta Maistri (email at


Immediately after my BA in Economic Law from the University of Padua (July, 2012), I was visiting student at the University of Trento during the academic year 2012/2013. That year I was also a MA student at Ca' Foscari University of Venice, from which I hold two Master's degrees. My first MA is in Economics and Management of Arts and Cultural activities (March, 2015), where I studied Museum Studies, Arts Administration and Early Modern History of Art (from the XV to the XVIII century). My second MA is in History of Arts and Conservation of Artistic Heritage (July, 2017), during which I wrote a dissertation about the arts patronage of the Archiduke Charles of Habsburg in Barcelona and Cataluña during the War of Spanish Succession.
