My research concerns the issues related to access to justice in environmental matters in EU law. My PhD project seeks to understand how the “concept” of access to environmental justice is conceived in international and EU law, and how this right is actually exercised under EU law before the EU judiciary. This means that my research also investigates means and tools used by environmental NGOs to overcome procedural and extra-procedural barriers preventing them from being granted proper access to justice.
Generally speaking, I am very interested in Public law (in particular in EU constitutional and environmental law). However, I am also very fascinated by the interactions between philosophy and law and the involvement of civil society in the decision-making process and the protection of public goods.
I am also member of the EUI Music Club, as my biggest passion is Music: I play the piano since I was 7 and the guitar since I was 21. My favourite kinds of music are jazz, blues and funk.
I graduated cum laude in Law (Bachelor’s/Master’s combined degree) at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan, where I finished my studies in 2015 with a thesis in EU law entitled “Environmental protection as a mandatory requirement in EU law” under the supervision of Professor Francesco Bestagno.
