Research interests

I am a Full Professor of Contemporary History at the School of International Studies and at the Department of Humanities of the University of Trento (Italy). I am Co-Director of the Master Program in International and Security Studies (a joint degree of the School of International Studies in Trento and the Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies in Pisa) and holder of a Jean Monnet Chair, 2018-2021. I teach courses on the History of the Cold War, on Decolonization, on Development and Security, and, as a Jean Monnet Professor, on the History of the EU. My research interests include Cold War History; Decolonization and North-South Relations; Environmental History; Italian Foreign Policy. I am the Principal Investigator of the PRIN research project "Inventing the Global Environment: Science, Politics, Advocacy and the Environment-Development Nexus in the Cold War and Beyond". My latest book is Global Development: A Cold War History (Princeton University Press, series “America in the World”, 2019)
