Research areas

Keywords: Italian Narrative and Poetry of the Twentieth Century. Italian Cinema. Gender Studies, Postcolonial Theories. Medical Humanities, the Dialogue between Humanities and the Sciences, in particular in connection with the conception and development of the Modern Welfare State. 

Generally my research is intimately connected with the subjects I teach at Honours and PG level. Although my specialist areas are those of Italian Poetry (Eugenio Montale and Cesare Pavese in particular) and contemporary cinema (Mario martone and Nanni Moretti), I have recently shifted some of my research attention on new areas: the dialogue of sciences and the humanities in the development of the modern welfare state (from philanthropy to state action); and medical humanties.
