Ph.D. Institution

University of Pescara, Italy


Since graduating, in April 2002, I have been a research and teaching assistant at the University of Florence, where I work with Prof. Riccardo Del Punta and Prof. Silvana Sciarra.
In the academic year 2002/03, after a competitive selection process, I was admitted to a Ph.D. program in the University of Pescara, and was awarded a three-year grant for full-time research by the Italian “Ministero dell’Università”. The thesis was dedicated to a comparative study of the regulatory techniques developed by scholars, judges, and legislators, both in Italy and in England, with reference to the lack of protection of workers employed in the so-called “grey area” between dependent employment and independent service contracts. To this end, from January to July 2005, I conducted research at the University of Oxford, Institute of European and Comparative Law.
Since 2003, I have lectured on specific labour law themes to private firms organising training courses for their employees.
Since the academic year 2004/05, I have been “Professore a contratto” at the University of Florence, where I teach a 30 hour course in Employment Law to 4th year students.
Since the academic year 2004/05, I have been participating, as a teacher, in an EC funded “Socrates Intensive Program”, dedicated to a comparative study of flexible labour contracts. In 2005, it was hosted by the University of Antwerp (Belgium), and in 2006 by the Kaunas College (Lithuania).
Since graduating, I have been involved in various research programs. Most recently, I have worked as research assistant in “The Evolving Structure of Collective Bargaining”, an International research project directed by Prof. Silvana Sciarra (University of Florence) and co-financed by the EC Commission and the University of Florence.
Since 2003 I have been collaborating with the European network of Experts in Fundamental rights (Director Prof. Olivier De Schutter).
My main research interests are Employment law, Collective Labour law, EC Social law, and Comparative law. More specifically, at the EUI I am working on the legal issues concerning corporate restructuring, within the AgiRe research project (scientific coordinator Prof. M. A. Moreau).
In July 2006, I was Italian national reporter to the XVII Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law, in Utrecht (The Netherlands).
My latest publications include: Representation of employees in collective bargaining within the firm (with S. Sciarra), in: Italian National Reports to the 17th Congress of the International Academy of Comparative Law, Utrecht, 16-22 July 2006, forthcoming; Contratto di lavoro intermittente e subordinazione, Riv. it. dir. lav., n. 1, 2005, 133; D. lgs. n. 74/2002: I Comitati aziendali europei, in M. Grandi-G. Pera, Commentario breve alle leggi sul lavoro, Cedam, Padova, 2005.
