My academic studies in Italy and England have always focused on the analysis and comparison of Italian, English and German literature. When I started my BA at the University of Pisa, I immediately decided that I did not want to limit myself to the study of a single literary tradition: like all other forms of art, literature can only be understood when it is inserted in an international context. Animated by this idea, I centred my BA dissertation on English and Italian texts and my MA degree thesis on the translation of German works.

It is thanks to my academic study of English and German that I decided to join UCL in London as a PhD student in Comparative Literature. My research project at UCL focuses on twentieth-century utopian and dystopian texts. As an academic and researcher in one of the most important universities in Europe, I am proud to give my small but enthusiastic contribution to the field of international literature.
