I joined the Department in 2013 as University Teacher in Italian. I graduated in Classics and Italian in my home town, L'Aquila, Italy. In 2001 I moved to England, where I studied at the universities of Leeds (Erasmus exchange) and Manchester (MA in Translation Studies). I then completed my D.Phil. at Oxford, with a thesis on Italian partisan writer Beppe Fenoglio and the presence of the epic mode in his masterpiece Il partigiano Johnny (Johnny the Partisan, post. 1968).
I hold an MA in Teaching Italian as a Foreign Language (ITALS, Venice, Ca' Foscari, 2013) and a PGCert (Liverpool, 2016).
Prior to my appointment at Liverpool, I taught at the University of Oxford and at the European School of Culham, Oxfordshire.
