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.
Over these years I have been mostly teaching Italian language, Italian culture and modules on art.
My fields of research mainly but not entirely fall within the perspective of Italian Studies.
First of all, the historical Avant-gardes: Futurism, Surrealism, Dadaism and De Chirico’s Metafisica.
Secondly, Perennial Philosophy and all the Italian authors and artists connected to it, let us mention Zolla, Evola, Assagioli and, last but not least, Battiato.
To this category is linked my interest in the philosophical implications of Quantum Mechanics, some of whose assumptions display a conceptual kinship to the perennialist Weltanschauung.
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.
