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 am a Research Associate at the Alcide De Gasperi Research Centre of the EUI since June 2018, and I am currently working on a project on the origins of the EU environmental policy, financed by the European Investment Bank.
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.
