Marlino Forlino, Ph. D. RU'2015







Marino Forlino ( 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.
