In addition to research and teaching in the ‘standard’, academic sense, I try to get involved in and to promote projects in the area of the ‘Public Humanities’.
In 2019, I obtained a Certificate in Engaged and Public Humanities at Georgetown University, with which I also received a Humanities Ambassador Fellowship for the project The Good Citizen – Human Nature and Public Life
I am a founding member of Philosophers for Sustainability and I have translated in Italian their Guidelines for Sustainable Practices in Philosophy.
I have always loved to write.
Since May 2020, I am part of the scientific committee of Climalteranti: an Italian blog about sustainability, climate change, and policy reform.
Most of my non-philosophical work is in Italian. Over the years, I have written and published blog posts*, short stories, poems, event proposals, political speeches, and more. In 2007, I wrote about my trip to Peru.
Political activism has also been a big part of my ‘pre-doctoral’ life, as well as a lasting passion. As Provincial Vice-secretary of the Giovani Democratici (i.e. the Youth organization tied to the Italian Democratic Party), I have contributed to the creation of a promotional video in 2014 and to the organization of several events, concerts, trips abroad, and more.
