About me

I studied in Milan, Pisa, London and Leuven and I was Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at Saarland University. From 2003 to 2019 I was adjunct, assistant and associate professor of Italian Linguistics at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan and Brescia. I have figured as speaker at numerous conventions in and outside Italy.


I teach Italian Linguistics at all levels and Italian Literature at BA level. From 2014 to 2019, I worked with the Accademia dei Lincei to organize training courses for Italian language teachers in Brescia. I also coordinated two Winter schools on the same subject in Milan. I have been a visiting professor in Hungary, Russia and Western Australia.


I have published various articles, essays and monographs on the history of the Italian language and dialects from the 14th to the 19th century, especially on medieval dialects, on the grammaticography of the 17th century, on relationships between the Church and the vernacular, on 19th century novels and popular literature. I have also published a handbook on techniques for learning to write and a dictionary of Italian word families (co-edited with Paolo D'Achille).
