Vincenza Di Maggio
It started with a painting. It was Titian’s Venus and Adonis. “Write what you see,” my college art history professor said to me. With those four words she ignited a fire within me that would drive my career as a writer, and as an art historian. I graduated with an MA in the History of Art & Archaeology from NYU’s Institute of Fine Arts, and recently completed an internship at MoMA. I have done freelance work for Condé Nast Traveler, The Architect’s Newspaper, and INSIDE F&B. Sicilian in origin, but I was born and raised in New York. When I’m not writing, I’m immersing myself in Manhattan’s vibrant art scene, witnessing first hand the beautifully transformative effect the arts can have on a city.
