Beyond Academia

"Mooncake", a mural by Greek artist Insane 51 at the Hanover Theater in Worcester (MA). June 14, 2021.

In my free time, I'm an avid traveller and most recently a pretty clueless photographer. Against all odds, some of my shots and writings have appeared in Harvard's Dudley Review and Graduate Review. I love poetry and have played around with it since high school, mostly in Italian, English and Spanish.

I was lucky enough to meet my mentor Alberto Alesina at Bocconi and Harvard. After his passing in May 2020, Italian newspaper Il Foglio hosted a joint memorial piece by my friends. I've also put out a more personal note in English.
