Research: The Pennsylvania University Minturnae excavations (1931-1934) through new archival data. Excavation Journal reconstruction and topographical perspectives
After graduating in Philosophy (Sapienza 1991) I focused on archival research concerning culture management and its relations with the historical-political context between the 1920s and 1940s in Italy.
I’ve been part of the Executive Board of the national project “A”rchivi del Novecento (shared archival database of over 100 cultural, enterprise, political parties and personalities) launched by BAICR Sistema Cultura (Istituto della Enciclopedia Italiana, Istituto Luigi Sturzo, Fondazione Lelio e Lisli Basso-Issoco, Società geografica italiana, Fondazione Istituto Gramsci) from 2002 to 2012, publishing meanwhile titles connected to my archival work.
Since 1995 I worked at the Istituto italiano per il Medioevo; since 2012 at the Directorate General for Archives, to whom I still belong.
I graduated in the 2020-2021 in Philology, literature and history of Antiquity (Roma Tre, supervisor prof. Marcello Spanu, co-supervisor prof. Riccardo Santangeli Valenzani). From this experience comes the ongoing research on the excavations of Minturnae in the 1930s due to the Pennsylvania University, the only esìxtended excavation in Italy carried out by foreigners between the Unification of Italy and the end of WWII.
