I am Associate Professor of Moral Philosophy at the Department of Philosophy and Communication Studies of the University of Bologna, where I teach Moral Philosophy and Philosophy of Emotion.

After taking BA (2006) and MA (2008) degrees in Philosophy at the University of Bologna, I moved to the University of Pisa for three years, where I received my PhD in 2013. From 2015 to 2018 I worked at the University of Bologna as postdoctoral fellow. In 2015 and 2016 I also worked at Edinburgh University, first as postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies in the Humanities, then as visiting scholar at the School of History, Classics, and Archaeology. From September 2017 to June 2018, I was EURIAS Junior Fellow at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study (Uppsala University) and from September 2018 to January 2019 I was chercheuse résidente at the Institut d'Études Avancées de Paris.

I am the author of Le ragioni dell’ira (Carocci 2013) and of Theories of Emotion: Expressing, Feeling, Acting(Bloomsbury 2023; translated from the Italian Introduzione alla filosofia delle emozioni, Clueb 2021; the Turkish translation is forthcoming with Alfa). My most recent articles appeared in such journals as Emotion Review, Theoria, Apeiron, Rivista di Storia della Filosofia, Giornale di Metafisica, and the Oxford Bibliographies in Classics, and I recently edited a special section on the emotion of Being Moved for Emotion Review. My forthcoming publications include an invited chapter on ‘Aristotle on subjective rights’ for the Cambridge History of Rights, one on ‘Emotion theory in ancient Greece and Rome’ (with David Konstan) for The Routledge Handbook of Emotion Theory, and several other contributions (see publication list).

I am a Member of the Editorial Board of the Bloomsbury series on the History of Emotions, of the series Syllabus (Clueb, Bologna), and of the journal Emotion Review.

I have been invited to give papers at a number of conferences and seminars at Universities in Europe, North America, and Asia, including Université Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne, University of Valencia, University of Crete, Bar Ilan University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Israel Institute for Advanced Studies, Dartmouth College, Fudan University and New York University-Shanghai, Fondation Hardt pour l’étude de l’antiquité classique, University of Zagreb, University of Stockholm, Université Paris Nanterre, Uppsala University, and Edinburgh University.
