Carolina Mangone specializes in Italian Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture. Her interests include the practice and theory of imitation, the posthumous lives of early modern artists, artistic biography and the impact of Vasari's Vite on the lived lives of artists, painterliness in sculpture, and the inter-materiality of baroque art and architecture. She is currently working on a book-project entitled "Bernini, Michelangelo and the Roman Baroque" that expands on her dissertation research into the lifelong artistic dialogue that Gianlorenzo Bernini engaged with the art and persona of Michelangelo Buonarroti. Carolina has published reviews of various books and exhibitions for CAA online reviews, Sculpture Journal and Renaissance and Reformation and is the author of a forthcoming article on the filial dynamics of Bernini's early imitation of Michelangelo.
