Short Bio

I have been a student at Bologna and King's College London; I have carried out research at Chapel Hill (NC), Birkbeck College (London), Verona, Edinburgh. Adjunct professor in Greek history (Trieste, Bologna-Ravenna) and Ancient Mediterranean history (Bologna-Ravenna), and ERC Research Fellow in Classics in Edinburgh in 2018-21.

From February 2021 I am Ricercatore a tempo indeterminato B (senior) in Greek History at the University of Bologna, Dpt. Cultural Heritage (Ravenna).

My research focuses on Greek classical history, ancient historiography, and the reception of antiquity in relation to the cultural heritage. I am especially interested in the relationships between Athens and Sparta, Athenian domestic politics, Greek political history and institutions, and the themes of democracy and oligarchy. I have also studied the architectural cultural heritage of Ravenna, digital tools for the study of antiquity, and the (ab)use of Greek antiquity in 20th- and 21st-century media.
