Siamo umani nella misura in cui ciò che succede ai nostri antipodi ci riguarda [...] quello che accade laggiù, molto al di là dei limiti dei nostri corpi, e anche nell’eventualità in cui ci metteremo mai piede, costituisce la nostra stessa esistenza.

I graduated in Cultural Heritage at the University of Udine, with a dissertation in History of Medieval Architecture. Only later I started dealing with Geography, due to the opportunity to participate in some historical-geographical research projects together with Alma Bianchetti and Franca Battigelli, both scholars at the University of Udine. This opened up a new path for me, that eventually led me to a PhD in Geography, earned at the University of Padua. The research I followed in the course of my PhD focused on the topic of common goods and, in particular, on the role of collective property as a territorial actor for local development.

After my PhD, I held regularly lectures, seminars and laboratories as a Contract Professor working for the Universities of Udine and Padua. From 2012 to 2019 I taught at the IUSVE (Istituto Universitario Salesiano di Venezia) for the Master's Degree Courses of the Department of Pedagogy, dealing with themes such as the common goods, the governance and the planning of local socio-educational services, with particular attention to the territorial dynamics and to the collective participatory decision-making processes. I was also a teacher outside the academic environment, working with regional and national bodies dedicated to education at different levels (mainly with Italia Nostra).

In addition to teaching, I dedicated myself to academic research at the University of Udine through various assignments. My research interests range from the issue of the common goods – and especially the collective resources (with a focus on the socio-economic role of collective property in a historical and contemporary perspective) –, to those of the landscape (from 2014 to 2016 I was part of the Work Group of the University of Udine that drew up the Regional Landscape Plan of Friuli Venezia Giulia, by paying particular attention to the involvement of citizens and schools) and the social economy (from theory to practice, with a focus on the Italian experiences).

My research activities went hand in hand with a constant partnership with various associations and local bodies (mainly within the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region) for the planning and promotion of local development measures.

I am currently a researcher at the Department of Humanities and Cultural Heritage of the University of Udine.
