Overview

My research focuses on Italian and Brazilian literature and intellectual history, with an emphasis on representations of state violence, fascism, and transitional justice. My dissertation, titled “The Lesser Evil: Legitimizing State Violence in Italy and Brazil,” reveals how fascist utopias are reinvented across time and space. I am originally from Italy where I obtained both my B.A. (2010) and M.A. (2012) at the University of Bologna, in Foreign Languages and Literature, with an emphasis in English and Portuguese.
