Academic profile

My first field research (2004-2007) focused on a “nomads camp” in Rome where more than 800 Roma were settled. I analysed “the camp” as a policy template to concentrate and control the Roma within the city, and the relations with Italian society built in this scenario (local institutions and NGOs). Following this research experience, I now focus on the issue of power and authorities within the Roma community settled in the nomads camp; so I am researching on the form of Roma participation in the local and national scenarios, their aims and methods, their rethorics and strategy. Since 2008 up to now I have been interested in analysing the new “Emergency policies” towards Roma, at both local and national level. Up to now, I am working on the situation of  Roma youngsters, especially those living in the camps, analysing their relation with the urban space and the gagè society, in relation to their hopes, possibility and resources.
