My DPhil thesis focuses on C. E. Gadda’s L’Adalgisa. Disegni milanesi, with the two-fold aim of providing the critical edition of the book (based on the autographs of the Trivulziana Library of Milan) and of connecting Gadda’s satire with a satirical-humourist European line (comprehending among others Swift, Fielding, Sterne). My project is funded by the Wolfson Post-Graduate Scholarship in the Humanities.
I am part of the Italian Research Seminar Committee (as Coordinator for the Modern Area) and part of the Oxford Modern Languages Graduate Network (as Academic Events Officer).
Before coming to Oxford, I studied at the University of Pavia, where I was member of the Almo Collegio Borromeo and of the Institute for Advanced Studies of Pavia IUSS.
