Titolare di assegno di ricerca

My research on Machiavelli and the history of archives is based on extensive archival research and long-overlooked documents as well as on editorial work. I am the author of Un Segretario militante (il Mulino, 2009) a monograph which investigates Machiavelli’s work in the Florentine chancery, and Books, People and Military Thought (Brill, print August 2020) that is dedicated to the relationship between the circulation of the Art of War, changing conceptions of militia, and the formation of new cultures of warfare in sixteenth century Europe. I have co-edited two volumes of the series Legazioni. Commissarie. Scritti di governo, which present autograph documentation of Machiavelli’s activities in the chancery, as well as two books (Archivi e archivisti in Italia tra medioevo ed età moderna, Viella 2015, and Fonti per la storia degli archivi degli antichi stati italiani, Direzione generale degli archivi, 2016), and a special issue of European History Quarterly on the history of the archives. Within an interdisciplinary cooperation of philologists and historians, I am currently working on the edition and comment of the private letters of Machiavelli. I was Wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter of the Research Center Otium at the University of Freiburg (2019), held a scholarship of the Herzog August Bibliothek at Wolfenbüttel (2018), and a Fellowship at the Collaborative Research Center „Heroes – Heroizations – Heroisms“, University of Freiburg (2018). I was a Member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton (2017), Research Fellow at Birkbeck - University of London (2012-2016), and a Fellow of Villa I Tatti (2011-2012).
