About Me

I am a PhD Candidate at the University of Cambridge. My project focuses on lazzaretti – quarantine centres – in the Mediterranean area during the early modern period. As lazzaretti were used as permanent quarantine stations for people and goods on the move, they were established above all in important trading centres and port cities along shipping routes in the Mediterranean region (Italian and Balkan peninsula, the Ionian Sea and south coast of France). They formed a system of nodal points collaborating in plague preventive measures while sharing information on epidemics, quarantine regulations and architectural models.
