La tragedia di Seneca

I started dealing with Seneca's tragedies some years ago, by taking part in a project on the translation of emotions in ancient Greece and Rome, led together with D. Nelis and L. Galli Milic at the University of Geneva and the CISA. In these last years I focused in particular on the study of Seneca's Medea, which I tried to investigate both in relation to the Greek model and in light of the stoic theories on emotions.
Since 2018 I have also started a collaboration with the University of Padua, where M. De Poli organizes every year conferences on the "Theatre of emotions".
