I graduated in Filologia, letterature e storia dell’antichità at the University of Bari “Aldo Moro” with a thesis in Greek Paleography entitled “Scritture e tipologie dei più antichi papiri greci con prescrizioni mediche”, under the supervision of Professor Paolo Fioretti and Professor Rosa Otranto: the research was based on the paleographical and typological analysis of a series of papyrus containing, indeed, medical prescriptions (IV – I B.C.).Earlier, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Lettere (curriculum Cultura letteraria dell’antichità) with a thesis in Greek Epigraphy entitled “La condizione femminile nella Grecia antica. Le donne medico” ; I focused my attention on a series of epigraphs from Hellenistic period dedicated to female doctors.During my academic studies, I attended the seminar activities of Paleography Lab in my Athenaeum and I participated in the project “Manoscritti e identità culturali in Europa e nel bacino del Mediterraneo” (related to the program “Messaggeri della Conoscenza”, coordinated by Prof. Paolo Fioretti and Prof. Filippo Ronconi).My fields of interest are, especially, Paleography, Papyrology, Epigraphy and History of ancient medicine; for this reason I tried to combine the interest in these disciplines when I chose the subjects of both thesis. It was an honor and a pleasure to take part in IIPS 2017. I had the opportunity to visit important and charming places, attending lessons of academic professors and sharing ideas with brilliant students and scholars from different countries. This experience has touched me a lot and has confirmed that research cannot do without unceasing curiosity and close collaboration between scholars.
