Federica Rossetti studied Classical Philology in Naples and she started her doctorate in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Giancarlo Abbamonte, Naples, and Prof. Laurent Pernot, Strasbourg. She gained her PhD at Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II in June 2017, in a joint doctoral program with Université de Strasbourg (CARRA). Her research interests deal with Italian Humanism and Renaissance Latin, in particular with commentaries on Classics of the 15th Century. Her PhD thesis concerns the reception of Persius’ Satires in the Renaissance period and it provides the critical edition of the commentary on Persius of Giovanni Britannico (1481). At the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies, Federica is working on the reception of Stoic authors Seneca and Persius in the 16th Century.
