Professor (retired) of Italian literature from 29/05/1986 to 04/12/2019 in UNESP (State University of São Paulo). Editor-in-chief of the journal “Revista de Letras” (since January 2010) He has given about 34 lectures on Italian and Brazilian literature at different Brazilian and international cultural institutes.

Concerning the presentation on January 24, Prof. Mauro shares:

“I intend to investigate whether there really is an Italian way of being a genius in literature, from Dante to Montale. I will highlight the original way of examining the human condition and the role of the human being in the universe, particularly in Dante, Leopardi and Montale.”
