Short Bio

I graduated with full marks and honours in Law in 2010 at “Bocconi” University (Milan) and passed the bar exam in 2013. I then graduated with full marks and honours in Foreign Languages and Literature (2014) and Italian Language and Literature (2016) at the University of Milan. In 2020 I obtained a Ph.D. (cum laude) in Linguistics at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, with a thesis on Giulio Rezasco’s Dizionario del linguaggio italiano storico ed amministrativo (published in 2023). During my studies, I spent periods of research at the universities of Paris II (Panhéon-Assas), La Havana, Cambridge and Lausanne. From 2020 to 2022 I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Salento (Lecce) in the framework of the PRIN 2017 “Clarity in Court Proceedings (ClarAct): a new database for scholars and citizens”. I am now a research fellow at the University of Padua in the framework of the ERC-Consolidator Grant 2020 MICOLL.
My research interests mainly concern the language of law and administration (from a synchronic and diachronic point of view) and lexicography, on which I have published articles and I have given lectures and conference presentations. I am a member of the scientific committee of Commissione Lingua e Diritto of the Unione Nazionale Camere Civili and of the editorial board of the journal Testo e Senso.
