Schaff, das Tagwerk meiner Hände, hohes Glück, daß ich’s vollende!

J. W. von Goethe

I graduated in Foreign Languages ​​and Literatures in Udine, a branch of the University of Trieste, with specific training in the German language and culture and in historical disciplines, with a thesis in History of Judaism; I continued my studies in Trieste in a two-year course in Archival, Paleography and Diplomacy.

I have been a university researcher since 1988 and in 2001 I became a full professor in the field of M-STO / 06, History of Religions.

At the University of Udine I have carried out and performed various tasks in Commissions and Councils, I chaired the degree course in Public Relations (2002–2005), I was Vice Director of the Department (2013–2015), member and president of various commissions of selection and evaluation. In 2017 I was a member of the commission for the National Scientific Qualification, appointed by MIUR.

Member of the Teaching Committee of the Doctorate of Udine in History. Cultures and structures of the frontier areas, then of the interuniversity doctorate of the Universities of Udine and Trieste, part of the Council of the “Euroculture” Master and of the Council of the High School (2013–2015).

Currently I am Professor of History of Religions and History of Judaism in the degree courses in Foreign Languages ​​and Literatures, Public Relations and Cultural Tourism.

I participated in several PRIN research projects concerning the History of Religions and the History of Christianity and in one phase I was the scientific director and national coordinator (PRIN 2008), headed by the University of Udine.

I am part of the Scientific Committee for the series “Storia dell’Ebraismo in Italia. Studi e testi” of the Olschki publishing house in Florence and for the magazine founded in Rome in 1925 by Raffaele Pettazzoni “Studi e Materiali di Storia delle Religioni”.

I have participated with reports in various national and international congresses, I have organized and held numerous conferences and various activities for the benefit of the Territory.

My projects, my research and publications focus in particular on the History of Diaspora Judaism, mainly concerning  North-Eastern Italy, the Italian territories of the house of Austria and the Veneto Region of Friuli. I also conduct research in a comparative analysis and in "gender" studies, on the position and role of women in the three monotheistic religions and on the history of control and repression in matters of faith, which constitutes a privileged observatory to capture the dynamics of relations between the "religions of the Book" in the Modern age.

I am a member of the Governing Council of the Italian Society of History of Religions and of the Italian Association for the Study of Judaism, also a Member of the Deputation of History of the Homeland for Friuli, a founding member of the Association for the Study of Judaism in the Venetian area, member of the University Council of History of Religions in Rome, of the Institute of Social and Religious History of Gorizia, member of the Academy of Letters and Arts of Udine and, at the University, of the Interdepartmental Research Centre on Ancient Medicine (RIMA). In addition, among the international scientific associations, an Italian-French research team in Jewish studies, promoted by members of the Société des études juives of Paris, of the Scuola francese di Roma, of the "La Sapienza" University of Rome, of the EHESS of Paris and of the University of Bielefeld.
