INTERESTS, PASSIONS

I am interested in communication technologies and language sciences (linguistics, pragmatics, semiotics but also dialectology, semantics, orality and writing) and communication sciences in general.

My studies in Communication Sciences at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia responded to many of my interests and offered me great opportunities to in-depth knowledge on the subjects shown below.

Structural semiotics and generative path, in particular the generative trajectory of meaning and semiotics of the passions in Algirdas J. Greimas, social bodies in Gianfranco Marrone, works and prospects by Paolo Fabbri, Andrea Semprini, Ugo Volli. And more: the semiotic and linguistic point of view of Roland Barthes, Jacques Fontanille, Louis Trolle Hjelmslev and Ferdinand de Saussure.
