Marlino Forlino, Ph. D. RU'2015







Marino Forlino (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) is an Assistant Professor of Italian at Scripps College where I also serve as Director of the Modern Language Resource Center. My areas of specialization include Italian literature from the Medieval through the Baroque periods (with a particular focus on Boccaccio and Basile), the history of the Italian short story, the birth of the fairy tale, and foreign language teaching and learning. At the moment, I am working on my manuscript tentatively titled: Esoterico, Erotico, Esotico: la “cuntaminazione” del Pentamerone.
