Giulia Fresco earned a B.A. in Philosophy with a thesis entitled What is an Artwork? Institutional versus Essentialist Theories, blending G. Dickie's works about the “world of art” formed by social practices, and A. Danto’s theory of the intrinsic properties of an art object. She is currently an M.A. student in the Philosophy program at Università degli Studi di Torino.
