Dr. Nicolò Ferrari studied musicology at the University of Pavia in Cremona and then moved to the UK where he obtained a PhD with a dissertation on the masses of the 15th-ct. composer Fremin le Caron. He has been a Research Associate at the University of Manchester, and now holds there an honorary research fellowship. Among recent and forthcoming publications are an article on texting in late fifteenth-century polyphonic masses (Journal of the Alamire Foundation)studies on the "L’homme armé" traditionand the Catalogue raisonné of the Cappella Sistina music manuscripts of the Vatican Library, co-authored with Thomas Schmidt. He was awarded grants from the Society of Renaissance Studies and the Society for the Study of the Crusades and the Latin East, and holds an Associate Fellowship of the Royal Historical Society. During the fellowship in Zürich, Dr. Ferrari will work on methodological challenges of the digital turn in manuscript studies.
