Elena De Zordi


My name is Elena and I am a master’s degree student in medieval and byzantine art history at Ca’ Foscari university in Venice.

I am deeply interested in byzantine culture and at the same time I was an exchange student in Sweden during high school, so I wanted my master’s degree thesis to be about a subject that could encompass both worlds.

It may seem odd, but on the island of Gotland there are some artistic remains that testify intense contacts with the byzantine empire and medieval Russia, and they are going to be the focus of my work.

Thanks to the Lerici scholarship I had the opportunity to study at Uppsala university, where I had access to their wonderful library and where I could meet many professors to discuss my research.

I also travelled to Gotland, to the marvelous city of Visby, where I could finally see in person all the things I had been reading about for so long!

Thank you so much for this opportunity!
