Senior lecturer in economic history, Department of Economics, Quantitative Methods and Business
Strategies, School of Economics and Statistics, University of Milan-Bicocca
I graduated in Contemporary History at the University of Trieste, and I obtained a Ph.D. in "History
of European Society" at the University of Pavia. I collaborated as a researcher with universities and
cultural institutions, developing some projects concerning the economic and social history of
Venezia Giulia region. I have taught economic history at the University of Trieste (2001-2008), and
since December 2008 I have been a lecturer of economic history at the University of Milan-
Bicocca, confirmed since 2011.
My interests of research concern maritime history, from the midNineteenth century to the present
age, the history of transport, shipbuilding, infrastructure and, in general, the social and
entrepreneurial history of contemporary Europe from the nineteenth century onwards. More
recently, I began to deal with the history of globalization and international trade, with particular
regard to the evolution of long-distance commercial mobility systems. Some of my published work
are availabre at academia.edu and researchgate websites.
