I am a PhD Candidate in Latin Language and Literature at the Department of History, Art History and Classics at Radboud University Nijmegen. My current research deals with Cicero’s Caesarian Orations. Special attention is paid to the rhetorical strategies employed by Cicero to achieve persuasion, to support his arguments and to fascinate his audience. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree (2014) and Master’s degree (2017) in Classics at the University of Cassino and Southern Lazio. My main fields of study are Latin Literature, Ancient Rhetoric and Ciceronian scholarship.
