Short Bio

I like to describe myself as a legal historian with a passion for interdisciplinary studies. I was appointed full professor of Medieval and Modern Legal History at the Department of Private Law and Critique of Law of the University of Padua (DPCD) after having obtained, in 2020, an ERC Consolidator Grant for my project MICOLL (2021-2026). Two years later, I became the PI of another project (IUSTITIAM), this one granted by the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MUR) for the period 2022-2027. I studied Law at Roma Tre University (2003, JD equivalent) and obtained a PhD en-cotutelle from the University of Milano-Bicocca and the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris (2009), within the framework of the Marie Curie, 6th Framework Program of the European Commission. As a PhD student, I spent one year at the Research School of the Max-Planck-Institut für europäische Rechtsgeschichte in Frankfurt a. M. (2005-2006), one year at the London School of Economics (2006-2007) and two years at the EHESS (2007-2009). I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Roma Tre University, the University of Palermo and the University of Helsinki. In 2018 I became a research fellow in Medieval and Modern Legal History at the Roma Tre University Law Department. My main research interests concern the history of commercial law between the Middle Ages and the early modern period and the relationship between law and the humanities with a particular focus on visual arts.
