"Be the change you want to observe" (M. K. Gandhi)

Welcome to my home page!

I was born on the 30th of March, 1976, in Modena and I grew up in a very nice city in the center of Italy, Pescara.

Then, in 1995, I moved to Milan to study Economics at Bocconi University. After my undergraduate studies, I decided to stop at Bocconi for some more years to attend a MSc in Economics and complete a Doctorate in International Law and Economics.

I have also received a PhD in Economics at the School of Social Science - University of East Anglia, Norwich (UK) under the amazing supervision of Robert Sugden. My PhD committee was composed of Anders Poulsen and Martin Sefton. My PhD thesis was titled: "Contribution to Locally Enjoyed Public Goods, Herding Behavior and Common Fate Effect: Three Essays in Collective Decision Making."

I am financially supported by the University of Venice "Cà Foscari" where I am Full Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics. Previously, I was Full Professor at the Department of Economics of the University of Messina and Associate Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics and Management "M. Fanno" of the University of Padova. I am also Research Fellow at the ISLABocconi University. Finally, I am affiliated to the following research institutions and experimental laboratories: APESPBELSS, Bocconi University; BLESS, University of BolognaEELAB, University of Milan - Bicocca

I also spent some visiting periods at international institutions. In September 2016, I was visiting the Economic Department at the Queen's University in Kingston, Canada, as John Weatherall Distinguished Fellow. In 2011, I spent 5 months (since January to June) at the Department of Economics of the University of Miami as Visiting Professor in Economics.

My research interests include behavioral public choice, experimental economics and microeconometrics.

I am the president of GuardAvanti - per il futuro dei bambini, a lively and effective ONG that promotes development projects (both in developing countries and Italy) for the welfare of children.

I am married to Laura (the best finding of my life) since June 2005. Since December 2007 and November 2010, Filippo and Benedetta, two angels fallen down from heaven, take care of us. We live together in a very (maybe too) quiet village on the Maggiore lake, Somma Lombardo.

Apart from studying agents' behavior in their daily-life situations, I love trekking, travelling and (of course) reading.
