My research interests lie in political and Intercultural theatre in Italy and in Europe.
While working on my PhD, which explored intercultural literature written by migrants in Italy, I produced a play, 'And the City Spoke'. The play focused on the relationship between refugees and the city of London and other major European cities. My interests in politics and interculturalism come together in my recent book (2015) on contemporary intercultural and transcultural Italian theatre. The study focuses on  the stage as a space where the centre and the margin can be reconfigured through the way in which  European, refugees and immigrant actors use body and language in the interplay of cultural similarities and differences.
