Research and Teaching Interests

Boccaccio, Medieval Italian Literature.


In 2012 I was awarded a B.A. in Italian Medieval Literature at the University of Bergamo with a thesis on Carducci’s medieval studies and his political and professional influences on the Scuola Storica Italiana, titled “Carducci nel Medioevo”.

In 2017 I was awarded an M.A. in Medieval and Renaissance Italian Philology summa-cum-laude at the University of Venice Ca’ Foscari, with a thesis on "Il Pecorone", a fourteenth-century collection of short tales titled “Studi per l’edizione critica e commentata del Pecorone di Ser Giovanni”.

Since 2018, I am a Ph.D. candidate in Italian at the University of Notre Dame. My research is focused on Boccaccio and the others Italian short-story writers, and Medieval travel literature.
