After studying Art History at Cà Foscari University of Venice, in 2010 I was awarded a PhD in Visual Cultures from Goldsmiths, University of London, with a dissertation on Pier Paolo Pasolini's cinema and poetry. Between 2012 and 2016 I was Assistant Professor in Film and media Studies at Yasar University (Izmir, Turkey), where I taught Documentary Cinema and Visual Cultures and supervised the Documentary practices lab and Short film lab. I published essays and articles in academic journals on Italian cinema, documentary and essay films, on the cinema of Pier Paolo Pasolini, Michelangelo Antonioni, Pietro Germi, Lisandro Alonso, Apichaptong Weerasethakul (Studies in European Cinema, New Cinemas, Cinema e Storia, Aniki), editor of the anthology 'Requiem for a Nation: religion and politics in Post-war Italian Cinema' (Mimesis International).

In 2016 I established Altrove Films (Trento, Italy), an independent production company producing films, documentaries and new media. Recents projects released include: 'J' by Gaetano Liberti, which world-premiered at the 29th FIDMarseille, International Competition (July 2018) and IFF Rotterdam (2019) and HOA by Marco Zuin (Italy/ Vietnam) which world-premiered at the 59th Festival dei Popoli (Firenze), November 2018.
