Areas of expertise: Superheroes, publishing industry

MA in Publishing and Journalism (Università degli Studi di Verona), BA in Languages and Cultures for Publishing (languages of expertise English and Spanish). My first thesis work dealt with film transposition and the intersemiotic translation of book elements into tools for the new media. More recently, I’ve been delving into artist Leo Lionni’s biography and extensive work, with specific attention to his graphic design aimed at journal publishing and illustrated books for children. My main research interests focus on: American popular culture and its representation through cinema, TV series and music; the construction of US heroic figures, especially related to the superhero genre in film and comics; editorial currents in the international market.
