I am a philosophy of language researcher at the Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft in Berlin and a philosophy professor at Università degli Studi di Siena. I hold or have held fellowships with several international institutions, including the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung and the William J. Fulbright Foundation.

My research interests include the pragmatics and semantics of natural languages, with a specific focus on the interaction between linguistic interpretation and world knowledge. I also have an interest – a theoretical interest – in the history of the philosophy of language, especially in the philosophy of Leibniz and of Wittgenstein.

I was born in 1983 in northern Calabria, southern Italy, northern coast of the Mediterranean sea. Over the years, I have written about politics.
