Epica ed elegia di età augustea

Even though I would not consider myself as an "Ovidianist" in the strict sense, I have long been studying Ovid from different perspectives, including the aspect of the literary genre, the use / reuse of models, the reception of his works. Currently I am dealing with his invective poetry (Ibis) and with his elegiac epistles, the Heroides, which I resumed after more than a decade by contributing to a forthcoming volume (edited by A.N. Michalopoulos, S. Alekou and D. Keramida), and by organizing in Udine an international conference, whose proceedings will be published soon.
