Curriculum vitae

In 2002 I obtained my high school diploma at the "R. Franchetti" High School di Mestre (VE). In 2005 I graduated in Modern Literature at the Ca' Foscari University of Venice with a thesis on the poet Mario Luzi; then in 2008 I graduated in Italian Linguistics and Literary Civilization at the University of Bologna with a thesis on Giorgio Manganelli's poetic work (supervisors: Prof. Niva Lorenzini and Prof. Stefano Colangelo).

In 2012 I obtained my PhD at the University of Bologna with a thesis entitled Rhetoric as dissimulation. The rhythm of Manganelli's prose (supervisors: Prof. Niva Lorenzini and Marco Antonio Bazzocchi).

From 2013 to 2015 I was Research Assignment at the Department of FICLIT for the research project proposed by Prof. Bazzocchi entitled La cultura bolognese degli anni Trenta vista dalla prospettiva della rivista "L'Orto" (1931-1939). From 2015 to 2016 I was Research Assignment at the FICLIT Department for the research project directed by Prof. Bazzocchi entitled Forma, informe e informale: un dibattito tra arte e letteratura.

I published two monographs: in 2015 Giorgio Manganelli. Emblems of dissimulation (Bologna, Pendragon); in 2018 Le forme della luce. Francesco Arcangeli e le scritture di "tramando" (Bologna, BUP), which contains unpublished letters by the Bolognese art critic and writers Giuseppe Raimondi, Attilio Bertolucci, Giovanni Testori and the painter Ennio Morlotti.

The main research interests concern prose and poetry of the second half of the 20th century and in particular the works of Giorgio Manganelli, Carlo Emilio Gadda, Giuseppe Raimondi, Francesco Arcangeli, Gianni Testori, Piero Camporesi, Gianni Celati, Tiziano Scarpa, on which I have written several articles in Italian and international magazines: Autografo, Poetiche, l'Ulisse, Between, Arabeschi, The Edinburgh Journal of Gadda Studies.

I collaborated in the realization of the collective volumes: two chapters for Itinerari nella letteratura italiana: da Dante al Web, edited by N. Bonazzi, A. Campana, F. Giunta, N. Maldina (Carocci, 2013); a chapter for Poesia e Storia, edited by N. Lorenzini and S. Colangelo (Bruno Mondadori, 2013); a chapter for Sergio Atzeni e le voci della Sardegna, edited by G. Sulis and G. Ledda (BUP, 2017).

During my PhD I carried out research activities at the "Fondo Manoscritti Autori Moderni" of the Univiersità of Pavia, and in 2011 I spent a period of study abroad at the Université Paris8 Vincennes - Saint-Denis. I was visiting professor in 2014 at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and in 2019 at Al-Minya University and Sorbonne Université.
