Academic interests

Purpose of my project is to study the production of pottery terra sigillata italica and tardo italica in the area of ​​Pisa (Tuscany, Italy) as case study to assess the environmental impact of large scale manufactures during the Roman Times. Therefore, I work on the production cycle and work organization together with environmental analysis, which combines the study of old sources, material facts and comparisons with well-known productive districts, with archaeobotanic, palinological and archaeological analyzes.

My academic interests include Roman Archeology, Landscape Archeology, Archeometry, Environmental Archeology, Archeology of Production, and New Materialism.


  • 2011: Bachelor's degree in Cultural Heritage Science and Archeology, Pisa University (Italy) with the dissertation "Amphorae production in Late Roman Sicily: Acium and Naxos kilns";
  • 2016: Master's degree in Classical Archeology, Pisa University (Italy) with the dissertation "The Roman city of Pisa. Spatial analysis for a reconstruction of the landscape";
  • 2016-2017: Internship at the MAL Environmental Archeology Laboratory, Umeå University (Sweden) with a project about design and implementation of a 3D GIS for the Mesolithic site of Lillsjön, Pengsjö Ångermanland.

Throughout and after my studies I have participated in several archaeological excavations in Italy, Tunisia and France and I worked at the implementation of a DB for an archaeological potential map of Pisa ( http://www.mappaproject.org/?lang=en ) .

Besides, I worked as a teacher in primary and secondary school with projects on Archeology, History, Historical Landscape and Identity in Cultural Heritage.
