I had my BA and MA from the University of Bologna; there I was thoroughly trained in ancient languages, and became familiar with a wide range of authors from classical and late antiquity, both Latin and Greek. My BA thesis focused on a Herculaneum papyrus, PHerc 19/698. For my MA thesis, I aimed to Greek theatre and worked on Aeschylus’ Theoroi, a satyr play preserved by an Oxyrhynchus papyrus (P.Oxy. XVIII 2162).

My PhD research was on a Sophoclean tragedy, the Eurypylus (frr. 206-222 Radt). A draft of a monograph, the first to be published about the Eurypylus, is in progress and scheduled for publication in the prestigious series ‘Testi e commenti’.

In 2013 I improved my expertise abroad by spending six months in London and Oxford to study Papyrology; in the year 2014/2015 I have attended the Vatican School of Greek Palaeography, and learned the ways of ancient Greek manuscripts. 2015-2020 I held a post-doctoral research position ('assegnista di ricerca') in Naples, in the ERC project PLATINUM (P. I. Prof M. C. Scappaticcio), where I have been taught Latin palaeography.

From January 2021 I am a Marie Curie Global Fellow (and 'Ricercatore a tempo determinato senior/tipo B') at Università di Bologna, Dipartimento di Storia Culture e Civiltà - host institution, the Centre of Tebtynis Papyri at University of California, Berkeley (CA).
