Daniele is a first-year PhD student and a Teacher Assistant in the Italian Department at UNC. His research especially focuses on Italian literature and philosophy between the end of the 19th and the first decades of the 20th-century, and particularly on symbolism, aestheticism, avant-gardes, and neoidealism. He is also interested in other important 20th-century cultural movements related to the “fundamentals crisis”, such as Konservative Revolution, and the “long wave” that, starting from postmodernism and post-structuralism, reaches cultural debates of great topical relevance, such as Italian Theory, posthumanism and accelerationism.
