It is our great pleasure to report that Daniele Di Cola, a postdoctoral fellow at our Institute, has been awarded a publication prize by the University of Rome “Sapienza” for his PhD dissertation L’arte come unità del molteplice. I fondamenti critici di Leo Steinberg. The Sapienza annual publication prize was established three years ago by the Department of History, Anthropology, Religions, Visual and Performing Arts in order to fund the publication of the best dissertations in art history defended by the Department’s PhD candidates. The books are published by De Luca Editori d’Arte (Rome) in a illustrated series titled Esordi (Debuts). Di Cola is one of the four award recipients in 2020. His PhD dissertation, defended in 2018, focuses on the life and work of the American art historian Leo Steinberg (1920-2011). Steinberg is probably one of the most influential and controversial scholars of the last century, known for his pivotal books Other Criteria: Confrontations with Twentieth Century Art (1972) and The Sexuality of Christ in Renaissance Art and in Modern Oblivion (first edition 1983). Di Cola’s book will be the first comprehensive intellectual biography of Steinberg and will no doubt constitute a landmark contribution to the understanding of Steinberg’s work and its legacy. We congratulate Daniele Di Cola on this achievement and we look forward to reading his book and discussing it with him and the scholarly community of our Institute.
