I have been studying ancient polytheistic religions since my first M.Sc. degree in Classics, with a special focus on archeological sources and from an anthropological perspective. The results of my first M.Sc. thesis and of my Ph.D. dissertation were published by L’Erma di Bretschneider and Scienze e Lettere (Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei). After a career break (during which I taught in middle and high school), I went back to the academia as MSCA Cofund Fellow at the Max-Weber-Kolleg (University of Erfurt). On the occasion of the IAHR World Congress in 2015, I started a long-lasting collaboration with a Swiss-Canadian scholar, Florence Pasche Guignard, to develop the epistemological key-tenets of a subfield of gender studies at the intersection between Motherhood Studies and Religious Studies (published in Numen - Brill). On this topic, I published a monograph, edited two collective volumes, and I organized a cycle of three International Workshops entitled Religionification of Motherhood and Mothers’ Appropriation of Religion. The results have been published as proceedings and a selection of them has been published in a Special Issue of Open Theology (De Gruyter). I am currently a Gerda Henkel post-doctoral fellow with a project entitled Votive Statuettes of Adult/s with Infant/s from Southern Italy and Sicily from the end of 7th to 3rd c. BCE: A Cross-Cultural and Meta-Disciplinary Perspective
