Being a resident of Venice for over twenty years, Robero De Feo has been one of the first Cultural Heritage Conservation graduates in Italy. Since 2011 he is a researcher and university professor at the current Department of Humanities and Cultural Heritage at the University of Udine. Specialized in History of Modern Art, Roberto De Feo has published several studies in national and international magazines and scientific journals. Among his last releases, the book "Giuseppe Borsato, 1770-1849", published by Edizioni Scripta, in which De Feo studied and analyzed the figure and work of Giuseppe Borsato, a fundamental character of the Venetian artistic scene throughout the first half of the XIXth century. Borsato was an easel painter, decorator of ephemeral apparatus and frescoes, official stage designer of Teatro La Fenice for more than ten years, holder of Ornate's Chair at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and supplier of models for furnishings. He served several illustrious buyers during his career and signed the scenic design of absolute “premières” of Rossini’s works that remained milestones in the field of stage design.
