I hold a MA in Contemporary History (2009) from the University of Florence (Italy), and a PhD in Contemporary History (2015) from the Scuola Normale Superiore (Pisa, Italy) and K.U. Leuven (Belgium). After my doctorate, I worked at the Archives of the Scuola Normale and collaborated with the “Fondazione Michele Pellegrino” (Turin, Italy). I have worked at the Alcide De Gasperi Research Centre of the European University Institute since June 2018, first as Research Associate and since March 2023 as Research Fellow.
My main research interests lie in the history of European integration, and the impact of religion in post-WWII European societies, with a particular focus on the political culture of European Christian Democracy. I am currently working on a project on banks and environmental protection in the early stages of a European environmental policy, and on an intellectual biography of Alcide De Gasperi.
