Olmo Calzolari


I am interested in 19th century and early 20th century Italian literature, and particularly in the works of Giacomo Leopardi and Italo Svevo. My research focuses on the representation of disease and evolution in these two writers. This project is possible thanks to the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
