Allison Levy is Digital Scholarship Editor at Brown University. An art historian, educated at Bryn Mawr College, Allison has taught in the US, Italy, and the UK. The author and editor of four books on early modern Italy and Europe, she is also General Editor of the book series Visual and Material Culture, 1300-1700, published by Amsterdam University Press.


One of the best chapters in the book brings [the relationship between young America and old Florence] vividly to life.
*Literary Review*

‘Levy’s writing is pacy and … witty, and she deploys a wide range of materials well’

House of Secrets is revelatory … Levy is a thorough and thoroughly engaging storyteller, leaving no stone of the Palazzo Rucellai unexamined … a whole memory palace embodied by the Palazzo Rucellai for which Levy — author, art historian, inhabitant — is the ideal guide.
