Eleonora Zampieri, Italian Fellow, was awarded her MA in Classical Archaeology at the University of Pada, where she also obtained her degree in Moral Sciences at the Scuola Galileiana di Studi Superiori. She then moved to the UK in order to study for her PhD (awarded in 2017) at the University of Leicester; there, she investigated how political propaganda was carried out via architectural display by Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great in Rome during the mid-first century BC. During her MSCA IF project at the Department of Historical, Geographical and Ancient World Studies, under the supervision of Prof. Luca Fezzi, she will explore the reasons whereby Roman magistrates in Rome between 78 and 46 BC won the elections; that is, what made them successful candidates in a period of political crisis. AMBIRE will address the gap in modern research concerning less prominent actors in Roman Late Republican politics and advance the understanding of the interaction between candidates and electors.
