I grew up in Italy, and to this day have its art and culture as primary point of reference and inspiration, especially as enshrined in Siena and its contrade(districts). In 1997 I moved to the UK and, as a student at Robinson College, earned degrees in European Literature and in Theology and Religious Studies from the University of Cambridge. Following my doctorate, I held a Junior Research Fellowship at Churchill College, Cambridge, and taught Italian literature at the University of Leicester and Theology at the University of Cambridge. I then moved to the US, where I taught Religion and Literature at the University of Notre Dame from 2009 to 2017. In 2017 I joined King’s, where my work focuses on the relationship between religion and the arts, and on the significance of this field of enquiry for human society and culture.
