Paolo's research focuses on the relationship between musica speculativa and grammatica in Dante’s linguistics and poetics. He collaborates as an encoder at Petrarchive, the digital edition of Petrarch’s Rerum Vulgarium Fragmenta, and he participated in the Deiphira Project, the digital edition of a witness of Alberti's Deiphira (Harvard University's Houghton Library, MS Typ. 422). He is co-editor of a new DH project, tentatively entitled Divine Networks: An Interactive Visualization of Dante’s Comedy, which maps the network of internal cross-references between the cantos of Dante’s Comedy. L’ascesa a Dio. Tipologie della preghiera nella Commedia di Dante, Paolo’s translation of Alessandro Vettori’s latest monograph on Dante, came out in March 2022. Prior to attending Rutgers, he earned an M.M. from the Conservatory of Perugia (Italy), where he graduated in Historical Piano defending a thesis on the role of literature in Robert Schumann’s piano music.
