I taught extensively Italian language and culture in higher education. I held positions at the University of Bristol, University of St Andrews, Monash University. I co-ordinated and taught a number of modules including ‘Contemporary Italian Women Writers’, ‘Fascist Italy’, ‘The Culture of Unified Italy’, ‘Italy on Film’, ‘The Italian City’, ‘Writing lives: Autobiography and Historical Fiction’, and co-taught both School and departmental modules.
