Post-doc Research Fellow at Dept. of Humanities and Cultural Heritage/ Dip.to di Studi Umanistici e del Patrimonio Culturale (DIUM), at the University of Udine.
In 2021 I received a PhD (Magna cum Laude) in History of Europe from the University of Sapienza, with a thesis focusing on Italian high fashion during WWII. In 2010 I received a PhD in film studies from the University of Bologna, under the supervision of prof. Michele Fadda.
For several years I taught "Fashion & Media" at Richmond University in Rome, while on occasion working as TV style consultant. I taught "Clothes on Film" at Sapienza University of Rome, a course I had strongly wanted and finally managed to create - first of its kind in Italy - dedicated to the historical and theoretical study of clothes on screen. I also taught "Moda e costume" and "Forme e linguaggi della moda" at the University of Turin (DAMS), and lectures widely at other universities and museums.
My essays, reviews, and articles are to be found in Fashion, Film & Consumption Journal, ZoneModa Journal, Cinergie, Harper's Bazaar Italia, biannual Hunter Fashion Magazine, and the newspaper Il Messaggero, among others.
In 2009 I was a fellow researcher at Brown University (Providence, Rhode Island, US), among the eight most prestigious universities of the world, part of the Ivy League. While there, she had the opportunity to attend the "City and Cinema" class taught by Prof. Dietrich Neumann at Yale School of Architecture, New Haven, Connecticut.
In 2012 my translation from English to Italian of Storytelling. Forme del racconto tra cinema e televisione by Kristin Thompson won the Limina Award for Best translation of the year in film studies.
