An Italian-qualified lawyer (avvocato) with experience in the area of copyright, trademarks and internet law, I am a lecturer in intellectual property (IP) law at the University of Southampton, a guest lecturer in copyright law at EDHEC Business School, and the Deputy Editor of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice (Oxford University Press). I also run my own copyright law and policy consultancy (e-LAWnora). Previously I was a Post-Doctoral Legal Research Associate at the University of Cambridge, and worked in the IP departments of Bird&Bird LLP in Milan and London.
I hold two law degrees summa cum laude from the University of Florence, an LLM from the University of Cambridge, and a PhD in EU copyright law from the European University Institute.
I have written extensively in the field of IP, and am a regular contributor to The 1709 Blog and IPKat blogs, for which I report and comment on IP-related news from all over the world.
I am a member of The Copyright Society of the USA, BLA©a, ALAI Italy, and the Association for Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property (ATRIP).
