Academic discipline: M-FIL/07 History of Ancient Philosophy

Short Bio

I graduated in Philosophy at the University of Bologna in 2004 with a thesis in the history of ancient philosophy (supervised by Walter Cavini) on Plato’s Ion.

In 2006 I was awarded admittance into the ‘Perfezionamento’ in philosophy at Pisa’s SNS, where I completed a trimester of research, as well as into the MPhil in Classics at the University of Cambridge and the Ph.D. at the University of Bologna, where I was awarded the title of Doctor in 2010 with a thesis on proems in Plato’s dialogues. In 2009, I undertook a period of research at New College and the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Oxford.

From 2008 to 2011 I was Adjunct Professor of the History of Ancient Philosophy at the University of Ferrara and from 2012 to 2018 I was a post-doctoral scholar in M-Fil/07 and a tutor at both the Department of Philosophy and Communication Studies and the School of Letters and Culture Heritage at the University of Bologna. Since the 3rdof September 2019 I have been a fixed term research fellow at the FILCOM Department.

I am interested above all in the links in Plato between philosophy and paideia and between writing and philosophy, and the figure of Socrates as a dialogical character.
