About:

I was born and raised in the Lombard Prealps. I hold a master’s degree in Philosophy (Hons) from the University of Padua and a Diploma in Moral Sciences (Hons) from the Galilean School of Higher Education. Part of the coursework towards those degrees was completed at Boston University. I am also a Middle Reader at the Canterbury Institute (Oxford).

My current research focuses on bringing Augustine’s political thought back to the forefront of Christian public engagement. I envision this as happening through teaching, writing and research, either within the academic world or in think tanks.
