He published a monograph on the work of Steven Spielberg (Il Castoro Cinema, 2014) and essays on contemporary Italian theory (American Imago, 2013), recent trends in French cinema (Camera Obscura, 2015), transmedia epic in the Italian context (The Italianist, 2016), the dimension of the essayistic in the films of Nanni Moretti (in the volume The Essay Film: Dialogue, Politics, Utopia, Columbia University Press, 2016), and the representation of 1968 in Italian cinema (forthcoming in the volume 1968 and Global Cinema, Wayne State University Press). He is currently working on a book project that explores the intersections between media representations and radical politics in Italy from 1968 to 1989.
