CAMPUS Leonardo

I am currently research fellow at the 'Venice Centre for Digital and Public Humanities' at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. I am also adjunct professor of 'History of Television and Mass Communications' at Roma Tre University. Last year I was adjunct professor of 'Contemporary History' at La Tuscia University, Viterbo.

After getting my PhD in Contemporary History (University of Rome La Sapienza, 2010), I published several research papers, in Italy and abroad. These include two monographs: “I sei giorni che sconvolsero il mondo. La crisi dei missili di Cuba e le sue percezioni internazionali” (Le Monnier, 2014, pp.560), which won the "Premio nazionale Friuli Storia" 2015 and “Non solo canzonette. L'Italia della Ricostruzione e del Miracolo attraverso il Festival di Sanremo” (Le Monnier, 2015, pp. 303).
Research aside, I have been working for years as TV and Web Author for the history thematic channel Rai Storia, writing for programs as "Passato e Presente", "Il tempo e la Storia" and "Tv Storia". I am also a journalist, a member of the National Register (albo pubblicisti) since 2002.

My research project at Ca’ Foscari will focus on the representations of Italian racial laws by Italian public television.
My research interests and past publications also include public history, history of Television, Italian popular music, Cold war history (particularly the Cuban missile crisis and nuclear age history), African American history.
