He furthered his studies by obtaining a second Master’s degree in Digital & Public Humanities from Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, presenting a Digital & Public History project involving the application of Sentiment and Emotion Analysis to the handwritten notices of the Tuscan resident in London during the First English Civil War. The project led to the creation of a dedicated website where users can access not only the relevant results and metadata, but also a video dedicated to the public sphere.
He worked as a Research Fellow for the Euronews Project at the University of Cork, dealing with the documentation regarding Amerigo Salvetti, a Florentine resident in London, for which he developed digital tools to extract metadata for both qualitative and quantitative analysis.
Currently, he is engaged in the DisComPoSe project as a Digital Humanist, with the aim of emphasizing the documentation collected by the project through available technologies.
His main area of interest concerns Digital Humanities and the many opportunities they offer, especially for the development of programs capable of automating the extraction of metadata from texts and the use of artificial intelligence for Emotion and Sentiment Analysis. In addition, he has a lively interest in the mechanisms underlying the diffusion of news in the Italian peninsula during the eighteenth century, with a particular focus on media such as printed “avvisi“and gazettes.
