As a young researcher, I aim at working in the interdisciplinary space between the Arts and the Sciences and to combine this work with artistic sensibility. I consider both academic and artistic work as ‘research’: a way to make meaning which employs different tools and builds on different traditions. I borrow academic methodologies as a starting point. I particularly like interviews as they allow me to listen to people’s everyday life stories, which I think help situating the knowledges one goes about constructing in research processes.
In more or less explicit ways, the body is often at the centre of my inquiry, both as a subject and as an object of research. The body is for me not only an inexhaustible source of wonder and mystery, but also a limit and a point of reference, the inevitable point of departure, even for theoretical inquiries. Therefore, I look for ways to grasp it, in its environment and to make it ‘mine’ as a form of empowerment.
I was born and I grew up in the Republic of San Marino. I graduated from a high school in Rimini (Italy) with a Figurative Arts / Painting curriculum. During that time, I spent one year in Trat (Thailand) as an exchange student, hosted by a local family. Since 2016, I study Liberal Arts and Sciences, major Culture and History, at the University College Freiburg (Germany). During the Academic Year 2018-19 I studied at the University College Groningen (Netherlands) with an Erasmus + scholarship.
