Research overview

I study the history and evolution of comics, with a strong emphasis on the relationship among these and other artistic and narrative forms (maps, chronologies, calligrams, rebus, etc.) and on the multi-panel sequential narration (frescoes, tapestries, picture books, etc.). One of the central points of my research is the attempt to overcome a literary approach to the medium in favour of a more visual one. My current research concerns both the attempt to insert comics into the wider field of data visualization and the study of comics as a medium capable of implementing scientific communication and dissemination.
