Laura Giacobbe

A couple of months after I turned 19, right after my high school diploma, I moved to the UK to study Art History in the University of East Anglia. After three years of undergraduate I moved to London to complete a Master’s in Art History from the Courtauld Institute of Art, specialising in Italian Renaissance Art, Botticelli, and the exploitation of art as a medium for political propaganda.

Throughout my academic career, I underwent a series of internships and work experiences in various museum departments, including curatorial, educational, event organisation and development. I was Chair of a departmental fund, where I organised a fundraising auction, though which I accidentally discovered my passion for fundraising.

As well as fundraising for Conductive Music, I plan on undergoing a PhD, hopefully in the Renaissance workshop and political art exploitation. As I am rather ambitious, my goal is, one day, to become the National Gallery’s first female Director.
