I am a researcher in the field of History of Logic at the university of Parma, with a special interest in Ancient and Medieval Logic. Currently, I am a Marie Curie fellow at the University of Parma, where I am assistant professor in “Logic” and I teach a course in “Philosophy in the Medieval and Renaissance period”.
The winning project of the Marie Sklodowska Curie global fellowship is dedicated to the modal theories of the Oxford Calculatores, and is carried out in collaboration with Prof. Fabrizio Amerini (University of Parma) and Peter King (University of Toronto).
Until June 2019, I was a post-doc fellow at the University of Freiburg and, in January-December 2018, a visiting scholar at the University of Oxford. These research periods were funded by a DAAD PRIME fellowship.
I received my PhD in September 2017 from the Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy). My doctoral dissertation focused on 12th-century theories of modality, with a focus on Abelard’s modal logic. You may find my project on 12th century logic and my dissertation here.
During the doctoral course, I was visiting student at the University of Cambridge (January-June 2016) and at the University of Auckland (September-December 2016).
I graduated in 2013 at the University of Parma with a thesis on Aristotle’s theory of modality. I still collaborate with the University of Parma with many projects, such as the biennial Workshop on Medieval Logic and Metaphysic and the project “Philo-diffusione“.
Apart from medieval logic and modal theories, I am deeply fond of music, walking and mountains, Italian food and slow ways of travelling. Since 2017, I am coordinator of festival It.a.cà, dedicated to responsible tourism (editions: 2017, 2018).
I am a founding member of the philosophical association “Vita Activa” (http://apsvitaactiva.com/) and of the project “Idee in Bozza“. I am also a member of the association “Il Taccuino di Darwin“, which organizes outreach events mostly dedicated to the topics of sustainability, inter-culturality and active citizenship.
