Anne-Marie Eze was born and raised in London but also calls Italy home having lived there periodically over the last ten years. She holds a first class degree in Classics and a Masters in Library and Information Studies with a specialism in manuscript studies and historical bibliography from University College London. She was trained as a librarian at Trinity College Library in Cambridge and worked as an assistant curator at London's Victoria and Albert Museum in the Photography collection and later on the Medieval and Renaissance Galleries project. Anne-Marie is currently completing a collaborative doctorate in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art and the department of Western Manuscripts of the British Library with a thesis on the infamous Venetian priest turned art-dealer abate Luigi Celotti (1759-1843) and a catalogue of the library's Italian illuminated miniatures. Anne-Marie is interested in the history of collecting, museums and libraries and loves exploring her home town's many art and book treasures.
