Italian Language Pedagogy
My scholarship focuses on Italian language pedagogy, and especially on the use of translation (including AV) in language learning. I am also interested in other areas, e.g. assessment, digital skills, use of literature and authentic materials.
Italian Literature of the Resistance
Along with my interest in the field of Italian language pedagogy, I have a research interest in the literature of the Italian Resistance, with a focus on intertexuality and links between classical (Latin, Greek) literatures and Italian XX century novelists, especially partisan writer Beppe Fenoglio (1922-1963).
