Cecilia Muratori received her PhD in the History of Philosophy from the universities of Jena and Urbino. A revised version of her dissertation was published in 2012 with the title ‘Il primo filosofo tedesco’.

Dohm, Micrologus’ Library 2013) and The Animal Soul and the Human Mind: Renaissance Debates (Bruniana & Campanelliana 2013).
After a year spent as Ahmanson Fellow at Villa I Tatti – The Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies, and fellowships at Forschungsbibliothek Gotha and the Warburg Institute, in May 2015 she will take up a position as Research Fellow in the Department of Italian, University of Warwick.
