Giulia Amoresano

Giulia Amoresano is currently pursuing a PhD in the Department of Architecture and Urban Design at UCLA. She holds a BSc in Architecture from the University of Rome 'La Sapienza' and a combined Master degree in Architecture and Urban Design & Planning from the University of Technology of Eindhoven (NL). 

At Cal Poly Pomona, she teaches a History of Architecture class which surveys the relation between societies and geopolitical contingencies using architecture as evidence at a global scale.  

Her work focuses on histories of architecture and infrastructure as they catalyze alternative forms of imperialist practices in the context of the newly constituted kingdom of Italy, the Ottoman Empire and Libya in the early 20th century. 

Prior to teaching, she has worked as a designer in Europe, Brazil and India.
