BA in Philosophy (University of Florence, Italy). MA in Philosophical Sciences (University of Florence, Italy).
I am performing my PhD education in Basic Sciences and Applications at the University of Urbino (Italy) and in Philosophy, Science and Values at the University of the Basque Country, UPV/EHU (Spain).

My doctoral research is focused on neutral monism. I investigate various definitions of neutral entity. I find that most of them are inconsistent with the main ontological thesis of neutral monism. More appropriate definitions of neutral entities come from Russellian monism. In particular, I explore the options that both panqualitism and quidditism are currently formulating.
