As a historian, I use architecture and monuments to explore the past. As Assistant Professor in Contemporary History, I am now completing a book on Italy’s Fascist military ossuaries (sacrari) of the First World War. Previously, I worked as a research fellow and lecturer at the British School at Rome, Magdalene College Cambridge, the Freie Universität and the Max Planck Institute for the History of Emorions in Berlin. I am author of a monograph entitled Architecture, Death and Nationhood (Routledge, 2017) and a prize-winning article on “ The Republican legacy of Italy’s Fascist ossuaries of the First World War ” (Modern Italy, March 2019). My current project explores what happened to Italy’s Fascist Party Headquarters (case del fascio) after the fall of Mussolini’s dictatorship.

Research interests:
- Architecture and heritage
- Politics and memory
- Fascism and nationalism 

Research projects:
- Italy’s monumental cemeteries of the nineteenth century
- Italy’s Fascist ossuaries of the First World War
