Angelica Federici is part of the research program “The Spaces of Religions and Spiritualities: Places, Devices, and Practices of Encounter and Recognition in Plural Societies” with a focus on virtual spaces and the metaverse. She is also a member of the research group in the project TESEO, funded by CARITRO.
From 2019 to 2022, she held a research position in the History of Religions at the University of Rome Tre, working on the project “Digital Humanities: Monastic Life in 13th and 14th Century Rome – The Complex of S. Agnese fuori le mura in Virtual Reality.” Her research involved the 3D scanning and reconstruction of the Roman monastic complex for the virtual restoration of liturgical furnishings, paintings, and spaces for the nuns.
She obtained her Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge with a thesis on the reconstruction of Roman female monastic environments in CAD, spanning the 12th and 13th centuries, which was published by Viella in 2022.
