I was fortunate enough to be born in what was the cradle of the Magna Græcia; Crotone. My interests for politics, international affairs and history were fostered by the multicultural environment ofmy high school experience at Maastricht's United World Colleges (UWC) in 2017.Italianissimo, I missed home and moved to Rome's John Cabot University (JCU) to pursue a double B.A. in International Affairs and History. Apart from its priceless human patrimony, JCU gave me the opportunity to engage in five different internships, be the University’s representative at the NYT’s Athens Democracy Forum in 2019, exchange for a spring semester at The New School for Social Research (NSSR) in NYC and work as a research assistants in Rome’s Central National Archives both for professors of JCU, the NSSR and my own undergraduate thesis. The latter was based on combining my two B.As and look at Italian Fascism’s pre-war internationalist plans from 1919 to 1935. All this and a share of luck got me to a graduate program during COVID that saw its acceptance rate drop as low as 5%. Indeed, I am now pursuing a Ph.D. in History of Modern Europe at City University of New York (CUNY). I will be happy to help anyone interested in a graduate career, in studying in an international high-school or university, and those who want to make their passions for political thought, activism, history and international relations into a career. Hobbies? Big lover of football, born fan of Crotone and sympathizer of Napoli, a growing Yankee fan while in NY and an enthusiast of novels, writing and classic cinema.
