Research Interests

Classical studies. My current interest is primaly in Vergil; secondly in Theocritus, Hesiod and Homer whom the poet creatively imitates; also in his contemporaries like Tibullus, Propertius, and Ovid. Besides, I study classical receptions in Italian literature, especially in Boccaccio's works.
