I have a background in classical philology from the University of Pisa. My major is in Late Antiquity. Thus, my first publications are within this field. Italian literature and history, however, have over time become my main field of research and teaching

Primary fields of research

Italian fiction in the 19th and 20th centuries (especially Luigi Pirandello's novels and short stories)

Danish travelers in Italy (Grand Tour) in the second half of the 18th century



The history of Italy from the Middle Ages to the present day
History of the Mafia and the Southern Question
The 70s and 80s in Italy: terrorism and political violence
