Academic discipline: IUS/19 History of Medieval and Modern Law


Main area of research:

  • History of the British constitution in the long 18th century

    Further research interests:

  • History of the Catholic church, her institutions and their relationship with the State, in the late Middle Ages and in the early modern period;
  • History of the notary public in medieval and early modern Italy

Current themes of research:

After having tried to outline, in my monograph Rivoluzioni silenziose. L'evoluzione costituzionale della Gran Bretagna tra la Glorious Revolution e il Great Reform Act, the evolution of the British constitution from James II to Earl Grey, I am currently focusing on the cabinet system and the role of Prime Ministers in the Georgian era. I am also working on how eighteenth-century Italian diplomats in London saw British institutions.

Another research project that will hopefully come soon to fruition is the edition of a diary of an Italian aristocrat and poet, Ubertino Landi, who went on a Grand Tour through Europe (mainly France, Germany and London) in 1713-14.
