Geologist and traveler, passionate about hiking and nature. My research project focuses on performing chemical and isotope analyses (Sr, Nd and Pd isotopes) on the Melt Inclusions (MIs) hosted in olivine crystals in Mount Amiata and in other volcanic areas in Central Italy (i.e. Radicofani, Vulsini, San Venanzo, Cimini, Albani, Sabatini volcanoes). My interests regard the Central Italian potassic and ultrapotassic magmatism and the main mechanisms which led to compositional changes between the magmas of the Tuscan Magmatic Province and those of the Roman Magmatic Province. Currently, I am involved in the CARG project for the geological mapping of Mount
Amiata, in Tuscany, Italy.
