Born in Cosenza (Italy) in 1964, I received my masters degree in Romance Phylology at the University "La Sapienza" of Rome with a thesis on a manuscript collection of poems by Provençal troubadours (Paris, BN, ms. f. fr. 15211). For research work I spent several months in Paris and was awarded with a grant of the «Unione Accademica Nazionale-Accademia dei Lincei» which allowed me to study with Jacques Monfrin (École des Chartes) and Geneviève Brunel Lobrichon (Institut de Recherches et d'Histoire des Textes). For the preparation of my PhD I sojourned repeatedly in France and Switzerland. In 1992 I passed the examaniation for teaching in secondary and higher secondary schools.
