His specialization is in modern Italian literature, philosophy and history, and his main research interests are culture and politics of Italy in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with particular attention to the trends of neo-idealism, simbolism, aestheticism, avant-gardes, marxist revisionism, fascist ideology, and national-revolutionary movements.
