I am currently co-editor of the Journal “European Journal of Sociology”. I have been Visiting Fellow at the University of New England, Australia; at Birkbeck College, London, UK and at the California Institute of Technology, Ca, USA.

Among my recent books: Italians and Food (ed) Palgrave, 2019; Body and Gender, Polity, 2024 (with R. Ghigi).
