Cristina Moretti


Cristina Moretti works at the crossroads between urban and visual anthropology. She is interested in the politics of public space, and in the relationships between vision, aesthetic practices, and city spaces. Most of her research takes place in Milan, Italy, where she examines how acts of seeing, concealing, and being seen are a central way for people to participate in public spaces, and in the negotiations which accompany their everyday use.

She is the author of Milanese Encounters: Public Space and Vision in Contemporary Urban Italy (University of Toronto Press, 2015).
