Prefects in Italy (1970-2000)
This research, part of the project “Personalentscheidungen in der öffentlichen Verwaltung seit den Krisen der 1970er Jahre: Nationale und internationale Perspektiven” coordinated by professor Christoph Cornelissen, focuses con the selection process of Italian prefects from Regionalisation (1970) to the riorganization of prefectoral carrieer at the end of the ’90. The aim is to analyse the relations between the law, the debate and the praxis concerning this selections.


Celestino Endrici: Story of the last Prince Bishop
The PhD research project focused on Mgr. Celestino Endrici, Prince Bishop of Trento between 1904 and 1940 and especially on the period after WWI and his incarceration by Habsburg authorities. At the end of the war, welcomed back in Italy as an hero, Endrici was able to assert himself as a personality and a crucial actor in the redefinition of the new Trentino province (schools, legal issues, religious issues). The Bishop is regarded as part of the larger foreign policy of the Holy See, seen as a multilayered actor of the international system, towards Italy.
