About


I’m an Italian writer and translator based in Wellington, Aotearoa/New Zealand. I write most regularly here and for the Australian literary journal Overland. My main research interests are cultural theory and in particular the relationship between memory and technology (which is also the subject of my doctoral dissertation). You can contact me at this email address.

This blog is published once a week, at midnight on a Monday (NZ time). It has been reviewed by Owen Hatherley in The Wire and Toby Manhire in The Listener. In 2014 it was nominated for a Canon Media Award, which needn't sound all that impressive if you consider I ended up losing to Cameron Slater. Later in the year, however, I was a featured guest on Playing Favourites with Kim Hill, which is one of the highest honours a human can receive.

Some other things of mine that you can read online:
The Spectacle of Surveillance (research paper)
La famiglia umana nel cinema di fantascienza (for Delos
The Work of Art (essay on Tao Wells' The Beneficiary's Office for the catalogue of the exhibition)
Smartphones aren't necessarily the death of humanity (for New Humanist and The Guardian)
My night at the Canon Media Awards (for The Pantograph Punch)
