ACIS congratulates Stefano Bona (Flinders University) and Esther Theiler (La Trobe University) on the award of ACIS Cassamarca scholarships for research in Italy in 2014. Stefano’s PhD research topic is the representation of China in Italian film since 1949 and its cultural, economic and ideological implications. Esther’s work, also for a PhD, concerns the analysis of portrait painting in Italy in the 17th century, using paleographic and linguistic skills to interpret archival materials. The competition for the awards was particularly strong this year, and the ACIS Scholarships Committee wishes to put on record the very high quality of all the applications and its regret that it could make only two awards.
