Research Focus: Classics.
Background: I graduated from the University of Bologna in 2009 with a degree in classical languages and cultures. My access into the American Academia was at first through a Master’s in Romance Languages and Cultures, when I had the opportunity to teach Italian to undergraduate students for two years. I went back to the field of classical studies in 2011, joining the MA in Classics at the University of Notre Dame. During this time, I started to concentrate on Latin literature of the early imperial age. My current research focuses on the interrelation of literary works and the Roman imperial regime, to understand what (and how) literature reveals of Roman social and cultural history of that time.
