Mia Fuller is a professor in the Department of Italian Studies, where she teaches courses on Italian cultural history, Rome, Italy’s North and East African colonies in the 19th and 20th centuries, and Fascism. Her publications often concentrate on architectural and urban history, and are based on fieldwork in addition to archival research.
