Viviana Santovito graduated with honours in Linguistic and Intercultural Communication at University of Bari "Aldo Moro" in 2018 with a thesis titled: "Kennst Du des hohen Nordens innre Seele? La vita e le opere di Amalie von Imhoff tra letteratura tedesca e cultura svedese". In 2021 she earned a master's degree in European, American and Postcolonial Languages and Literatures at Ca' Foscari University of Venice with a thesis titled: "Der Bauer und die Ewigkeit. Agrarromantik und Tod Gottes in Waggerls «Brot» und Hamsuns «Markens Grøde»". She was awarded a scholarship from Svenska Institutet (2015) in order to attend the summer school: "Sommarskola i svenska för utländska studerande" and won a scholarship from DAAD (2017) in order to take part in the summer school: "Deutsch in Weimar" at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Her research interests concern the interrelations between Scandinavian and German-speaking literatures in the period from the 18th to the first half of the 20th century. She published in the journal ACME the paper titled: "Verità della physis e menzogna sociale: Doktor Glas, un Übermensch fallito?", in which she reads the novel by Hjalmar Söderberg in light of Nietzsche's thought. During school year 2022/2023 she was active as Italian Language Assistant in the city of Salzburg. Currently, she is PhD student in Germanic and Slavic Studies at Sapienza University of Rome and Charles University of Prague. Her project research analyses the role of artistic and intercultural mediation played by Ola Hansson and Laura Marholm in the development of Viennese Modernism.
