Biographical note

I am a political theorist, with interests also in international politics. I graduated in philosophy from the University of Milan, and received my PhD from the University of Minnesota. Beside Bocconi I have taught at the University of Minnesota, The Ohio State University, Columbia University, and New York University in Abu Dhabi.


About

I am drawn to political issues that exceed the coordinates of reason, so I have been thinking and writing on empathy, suffering, and guilt – in particular political guilt for injustice in the past that endures in the present in the context of racialized politics in the United States.


Research interests

I have written a book on the “skeptical radicalism” of Judith Shklar, and several articles on journals such as Contemporary Political Theory, Philosophy and Social Criticism, Storia del Pensiero Politico, Political Science Reviewer, Biblioteca della Liberta, and Global Intellectual History. Currently, I am writing an article on the uses of political guilt.
