Bachelor’s Degree in Lettere Moderne and Master’s Degree in Filologia Moderna at Università degli Studi di Roma ‘Sapienza’, AHRC OOC DTP Studentship holder (2020-22)

I am currently working on a DPhil project aimed at exploring the mutual influence of the Cinquecento Questione della lingua and the contemporary Medieval Occitan studies. As part of my project, I am also going to produce a critical edition of Giammaria Barbieri’s Arte del rimare.

Among my research interests are Medieval Occitan literature, the survival and reception of (mainly Romance) Medieval culture in Renaissance Italy, theories of literature and language in 16th-century Italy, theory and methods of traditional and authorial philology. I also cultivate a secondary research interest for Alessandro Manzoni’s work.
