I’m an Italian lecturer, researcher and writer, currently teaching at Ruden University, Moscow.
After my Ph.D in Philosophy (dissertation on Pavel Florensky), I moved to Russia where I have been teaching for ten years (mostly Italian language and culture and modules on art).
About my current fields of research, from the one side, I'm fascinated by the historical Avant-gardes: Futurism, Surrealism, Dadaism and Metafisica.
From the other side, I'm into the philosophical implications of Quantum Mechanics, some of whose assumptions display a conceptual kinship to perennial Weltanschauungen I'm interested in.
Philosophers, poets and artists I love the most are: Bruno, Nietzsche, Cioran, Dostoevskij, Jung, Sgalambro, Battiato, De Chirico, Baudelaire, Marinetti.
For further and updated details about my academic publications you can see my Google Scholar page or my Academia.edu page where you can download free texts.
I have also published various books of ekphrastic poetry (mostly inspired by contemporary surrealist paintings), several of these collections have been awarded literary prizes.
