After assessing the applications for the “Raimondo di Sangro” research grant, published on 8th June by the Museo Cappella Sansevero in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano per gli Studi Filosofici, the commission awarded the annual grant to Chiara Cecalupo PhD, for her project entitled “Raimondo di Sangro, the Roman College, and the influence of the Ancient”.
Given the high quality of the projects presented, and in order to promote and encourage research regarding Raimondo di Sangro, the Museo Cappella Sansevero and the the Istituto Italiano per gli Studi Filosofici also decided to award two additional research grants, lasting six months and three months respectively. They go to Gianluca Forgione PhD and Benedetta Ruozzo MA. Gianluca Forgione’s project focuses on specific iconological aspects of the Sansevero Chapel, while Benedetta Ruozzo’s research focuses on Raimondo di Sangro’s feudal administration.
