I received a Ph.D. in American and Latin American Studies from the University of Rome 3 in 2006 and, since then, I have taught and carried out research activities in several Italian and foreign institutions:

At the University of Bologna, I was a member of the board of the Italian-Brazilian Cultural Foundation (2013-16), Coordinator of the “Conexão Cultura Brasil” program (2014-16, Ministry of Brazilian Culture), Co-director of the MBA in “Brazil and Europe Business Relations” (2013-14), Co-coordinator of the “Brazil Integrated Research Team” (2013-16), and of the “Ciência sem Fronteiras” program (2013-16, CNPq and Capes).
I was a Visiting Scholar in several universities and institutions, including University of Wisconsin-Madison, Tulane University, Stanford University, University of Florida, Smith College, Federal University of Minas Gerais, State University of Campinas, and University of Cologne.
From 2006 to 2017 I worked as a specialist in Brazilian politics and culture for the weekly Italian magazine Internazionale. I was a member of the editorial board of the Rivista di Studi Portoghesi e Brasiliani (2009-2016).
Currently, I am a CNPq Researcher with the “Projeto República: núcleo de pesquisa, documentação e memória” at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (since 2012); member of the editorial board of Letterature d’America (since 2004), and of the “Edições do Centro de Estudos Brasileiros” of the Federal University of Goiás (since 2018).
I have participated in over 60 international conferences and seminars (including as an invited speaker). I have been a member of Doctoral Commitees at the State University of Campinas, the Federal University of Santa Catarina, and the Federal University of Minas Gerais.
I am the author of more than 50 publications, including the book Nudi come Adamo. L’immaginario biblico nelle cronache dal Nuovo Mondo (Mimesis, 2018); editor of Maestro Soberano. Ensaios sobre Antonio Carlos Jobim(Editora UFMG, 2017) and, with Victoria Saramago, of Literature Beyond the Human. Post-Anthropocentric Brazil (Routledge; forthcoming 2022).
As a translator from Portuguese, I have worked for several Italian publishing houses, such as Feltrinelli and Sperling & Kupfer.
My research covers Lusophone literature and culture with a particular focus on Brazil. I am interested in ecocriticism, fictional soundscapes, and environmental ethics; race, gender, and sexuality; the intersection of literature, music, and philosophy; autobiographical and autofictional writing; Brazil culture abroad; cultural politics.
