Currently, Senior Editor at Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti, where the majority of my work involves editing and reviewing research that has something to do with the cultural heritage of the Maltese Islands.

For three consecutive years, Ms Privitelli was the co-coordinator of a course programme on Art and Faith (The Way of Beauty), offered by the PFI (2019–2022). In 2022, I delivered a module on Art Practice and Cultural Production (MFA) with the Department of Digital Arts (University of Malta), in which the intersections between religion and artistic practice also featured. in June 2023, she has been invited to deliver a lesson on ‘Manifestations of the HS in Art’ as part of the course programme ‘Introduction to the Holy Spirit’, also offered by the PFI.

In 2021, she completed with distinction a Masters of Letters in Theology and the Arts from the Institute of Theology, Imagination, and the Arts (ITIA) at the University of St Andrews.

Since 2013, Giulia Privitelli has been actively involved in an Ignatian youth network called Living Stones (Pietre Vive). The ethos of the group is based on intellectual (art, historical, anthropological, theological, and philosophical) and spiritual formation, prayer, and sharing (and in some instances, community life, too), all tied together through service in the form of free guided tours of certain Christian monuments (in Malta, for example, our place of service is St John’s Co-Cathedral). I am now part of the central coordination of Living Stones and also co-directing a residential mission year in Amsterdam, now entering its second year. I am often involved in Living Stones camps as part of the organisation team or as a formator.
