Welcome to my personal web page, where you will find materials chiefly related to my academic works. Please have a look around and don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Let me introduce myself. I did start my career as a professional writer in 1987, before getting my Master Degree in Italian Language and Literature, French Literature and History of Art (at the Universität Zürich, in 1998). Then I earned a PhD (Doktorat) in Romance Philology (in 2005, at the Université de Fribourg) and a double Habilitation (in 2010, back in Zurich) in Italian Literature and Old French Literature. From 2010 to 2016 I worked within the Department of Romance Languages and Literature as a Privatdozentin. In 2017 I was granted the title of Titularprofessorin der Universität Zürich (go to Education) and I am currently Professor at the Uni Zürich and Editor-in-Chief of the academic journal Theory and Criticism of Literature and Arts (digital version ISSN 2297-1874, printed version ISSN 2504-2238) and Director of the Research Centre for European Philological Tradition (www.receprio.eu). I also do have 30 years of journalistic experience in print, radio and television.
Thank you for visiting!
