'POLITICAL CUISINE: AN ESSAY ON THE POLITICAL USE OF FOOD 



I am working on European history museums. I am also investigating the case of study of the Parenzo museum in Istria from the formation of its collection at the end of the nineteenth century until today. Finally, I have the project of writing a history of the European nineteenth century in a global perspective.
