Lorenzo Bonaiti



M.A, Italian Studies

Research Interests

I grew up in Bergamo, a beautiful city not far from Milan, Italy. I graduated in Italian Literature at the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan. During the years of university I focused primarily on Modern Italian Literature and History. My final thesis concerned the Italian Maoist movement “Unione dei Comunisti Italiani” during the 60s and 70s and his relations and influences over the Italian society of that time.  I am very passionate about teaching, and especially about teaching Italian Language, Literature, and Culture. During and after university, I did two internships in two Italian high schools, and one in a school in Bournemouth, UK.
