Since March 2013 I work as an economist at the regional economic research division of the Bank of Italy (Firenze branch). In the previous four years I had been a PhD student in Economics at the University of Essex (United Kingdom), until I graduated in July 2013.
Here you can find my research papers, plus additional material related to empirical work:

See here for contacts. I am also a member of the Centre for the Analysis of Public Policies in Modena.

"Only the chemist can tell, and not always the chemist, / what will result from compounding /
Fluids or solids. / And who can tell / How men and women will interact /
On each other, or what children will result? /
There were Benjamin Pantier and his wife, /
Good in themselves, but evil toward each other: / He oxygen, she hydrogen, / Their son, a devastating fire.
I Trainor, the druggist, a mixer of chemicals, / Killed while making an experiment, / Lived unwedded."
