Personal profile


I am an Italian academic and legal counsel specializing in intellectual property, EU law and European affairs, information technology, media, cultural policies and Internet law. I joined Catolica Global School of Law in Lisbon as Abreu Professor in Law and Innovation in January 2023. Earlier in my career, I taught intellectual property law at Trinity College Dublin, where I was elected Fellow in April 2020, and at the University of Copenhagen.

I have gained broad teaching experience working as a Visiting Professor at the Academy of European Law (ERA) in Trier, the College of Europe in Bruges, University of Paris Nanterre, University of Versailles, Roma Tre University and University of Sassari. I was a 2018/2019 Emile Nöel Global Fellow and EU Fulbright Schuman Scholar at New York University School of Law. I was a Visiting Scholar at Pompeu Fabra University, ESADE Business School, Columbia University, and University of California at Berkeley. I conducted research as a Fellow at the Centre for Media Pluralism and Freedom at the European University Institute in Florence, the Instituto de Tecnologia & Sociedade do Rio de Janeiro, and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard Law School.

As a scholar, my work has focused mostly on the intersection of law, media, and technology. I have critically examined and analyzed fast-growing areas such as international, EU and US intellectual property, EU Digital Single Market policies and media law. I am particularly interested in investigating the legal and policy implications of a world where digital technologies and online platforms have altered the conditions and economics of creativity, professional content production and distribution.

As a practitioner and consultant, I advised governments, public sector institutions, companies and industry organizations in developing policy solutions and proposals to be addressed to law-making bodies. I also helped creators, device manufacturers, tech companies and telecom operators solve complex legal and licensing issues for their businesses at both EU and national level.
