Andrea Nanetti


Andrea Nanetti's university education is in Medieval and Renaissance studies (Italy, France, Germany, Greece, USA) at the interface of historical, philological, aesthetic, anthropological, and computational methodologies. As a scholar, he focuses on innovation and change in heritage interpretation and transmission processes at the intersections of (digital) humanities and data science (i.e. the ontologies of heritage science as a domain). He applies multidisciplinary and trans-disciplinary methods to identify case studies for interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary teamwork investigations, which resulted in 10 books and more than 50 other scholarly publications in English, Italian, Chinese, Spanish and Modern Greek, focusing on following main areas: global histories of intercontinental networks, national art-heritage-politics relationships, territorial man-heritage-landscape systems, and, more recently, cultural and biological heritage systems in human interpretation of the external world (seen as artificial intelligence amplifications ante litteram).
