Born in Belgium and raised in Italy in an artistic and international family, I moved to England to pursue my passions in music – and in Shakespeare.
I have been involved with Shakespeare’s work from every side: as a musician, an actor, a director, a teacher and now as a scholar. His work remains for me an inexhaustible source of inspiration. I am currently a PhD candidate at St Edmunds College, University of Cambridge, writing on ‘Shakespeare and the Language of Grace’.
Aside from my work in Cambridge, I am also currently member of the Academic Board of the Temenos Academy and Reviews Editor of the Temenos Academy Review. I have taught and lectured for the Temenos Academy; the Prince of Wales School of Traditional Arts; the William Blake Society; Rewley House, Oxford and the Institute of Continuing Education at Madingley Hall, Cambridge among others.
My teaching and scholarly interest include Shakespeare, Plato, the Platonic Tradition (Plotinus, Iamblichus, Proclus), Early Christianity (Origen, Evagrius, Maximus Confessor), Medieval Literature and Theology, Philosophical Hermeneutics and William Blake and Romantic Poetry.
I am particularly interested in interdisciplinary learning and its vital role in secondary and tertiary education: specifically the interface between theology, philosophy and literature and the development of a creative and insightful dialogical relationship with pre-modern text, as a way to foster the basis of civic, ecological, moral and spiritual education.
