Laura Banella

After graduating from University of Pisa and Scuola Normale Superiore, I earned a doctorate in Italian literature from the University of Padova. My main research interests lie in medieval Italian literature and material philology. Particularly, I am exploring the reception of Boccaccio’s edition of Dante’s Vita nuova, and the canonization of Dante through the study of lyric anthologies.
