I am currently a STARS Post-Doctoral Fellow (“Supporting TAlent in ReSearch @ University of Padova") at the Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche, Giuridiche e Studi Internazionali, University of Padova. My present research is on merchant justice across Europe, with a focus on the resolution practices.
Previously, I have been a Researcher at Aalto University of Helsinki for the ERC project "Refashioning the Renaissance: Popular Groups, Fashion and the Material and Cultural Significance of Clothing in Europe, 1550-1650", led by Paula Hohti.
Between 2014 and 2017, I was a Post-Doc at the University of Bologna (Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche e Sociali). My research interests deals with international relations, commerce and justice practices in the Renaissance and Early Modern period. 
In 2014 I received my Ph.D. at University of Verona . My thesis was in the field of economic and social history, with a special focus on merchants' networks during the Renaissance, supervised by Prof. Edoardo Demo and Prof. Renzo Sabbatini. 
During my Ph.D. and Post-Docs, I have been Visiting Scholar ath the University of Cambridge and St. Andrews (UK).
I completed my Master degree in History in 2010 at the University of Padua. I graduated with a research on Venetian merchants, studying a double-entry bookkeeping ledger (1463-64), supervised by Prof. Giuseppe Gullino.
