I am currently a doctoral candidate in History at New College – Oxford, where I hold the Hugh Trevor-Roper Graduate Scholarship. Previously, I studied History (BA) and Historical Sciences (MA) at the University of Milan. I am also an alumnus of one of the biennial Schools of Archival Studies, Palaeography and Diplomatics of the Italian state archives.
In Autumn 2015, I held a TORCH visiting studentship at the Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice, funded by the John Fell OUP Fund. In Summer 2016, I was junior visiting fellow at the Department of Historical Studies of the University of Milan, sponsored by the Colin Matthew Fund at St Hugh’s College.
My doctoral project deals with borders, space and mobility in late medieval and early Renaissance Italy. More broadly, I am interested in the history of political cultures and languages, the everyday movement of people and objects, spatial and digital history, the history of cartography, record-keeping and historical memory.
