Silvia Barisione has been named curator of The Wolfsonian–Florida International University. She comes to the museum from the Wolfsoniana in Genoa, Italy, where she was a curator and registrar since 1991. The Wolfsoniana was founded in the late 1980s as a study center and repository to oversee the Mitchell Wolfson, Jr. Collection. The institution is now part of the Nervi parks and museum district and includes more than 18,000 objects and works of art, most of Italian origin, dating from 1880 through 1945. For several years, she taught the Design and Italian Culture course for Florida International University’s Genoa Architecture program, part of FIU’s study abroad program.
