Janet has lived between Rome and U.S.A. while working on her dissertation for Columbia University on photography in Italy under Fascism. Before that, she worked as an editor for an arts
publication in Chicago. She is a painter and has taught
drawing and painting in art schools and art departments in the Boston area. Her specialization in Modern Italy addresses the effects on Italians of living with history while defining themselves as modern so she has become familiar with Rome's many pasts and their expression through art and architecture. She is now based in Rome where, among other things, she sings in a Gospel Choir.
