After graduating with merit in history at the University of Milan in 2004, I had my PhD at the University of Florence (2005-2008) in Early Modern and Contemporary Historical Studies. My PhD dissertation was awarded best doctoral thesis in the humanities at Florence University in 2008 and was thus published in 2009 by Firenze University Press.

In addition to my previous studies in Humanities, in 2008 I added study experience in Political Science faculties to my interdisciplinary training with a Postgraduate International Master Degree in History and Comparative Studies of Political and Legal Institutions in Mediterranean Europe (University of Messina, University of Milan, University of Cordova). From 2009 to 2015 I was awarded a specialisation fellowship to be carried out at Madrid’s Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia and post-doctoral fellowships at University of Milan and at University of Padua.

In 2015 I was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship at CIDEHUS-University of Évora (Portugal) and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship at École des hautes études en sciences sociales (Paris, France) (“Global Inheritance” research project).

After having taught at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (2012) and at University of Milan (2014-2018), in November 2018 I became associate professor of Early Modern History at the University of Pisa.

I take part in international research networks (Red Columnaria, Nodo: “Hombres y espacios“; CEPOC, Centro di Studi le Polizie e il Controllo del Territorio) and I am a member of the SISEM “Società Italiana per lo Studio della Storia Moderna”. Furthermore, after having being part of the editorial board of the journal Società e Storia (2011-2021), I am currently a member of the editorial committee for the peer-reviewed journals Quaderni Storici and Autoctonía.
