Her main research interest is modern Italian poetry, especially the interplay, central to the development of  the late 19th- and 20th-c. Italian lyric, between tradition and experimentalism with form and language(s). Her interests also include the reception of Guido Cavalcanti’s work in 19th-c. European poetry, poetic translation in 20th-c. Italy, and Italian cinema. She has written on Marinetti, Amelia Rosselli, poetic translations, the fantastic genre and Anna Maria Ortese, and contemporary Italian cinema. She is currently working on a study of Amelia Rosselli’s poetry and prose.
