I am Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Genoa. I’ve been Jean Monnet Fellow at the European University Institute (EUI, Florence) and research fellow at the Scuola Sant’Anna (Pisa). My fields of research are contemporary warfare, strategic culture, Italian and European defense policy. In the last decade I have evaluated projects and programmes of development cooperation, undertaking several field missions in Middle East, Africa and Eastern Europe. I love travelling, Western movies, Expressionist paintings, 80s punk music and The Octonauts. Husband and father, I’m a fierce supporter of ACF Fiorentina.
