Hi, I'm Matteo

I am a PhD candidate at LUISS Guido Carli University (Rome), member of the Council for European Studies (CES) at Columbia University. I recently attended a course at Harvard University. My PhD is focused on the study of institutional capacities to face crises and global challenges, development of political institutions and their adaptability.


It is about going in depth to the following theoretical assumption: institutions which can endure, flourish and overcome crises are the more adaptable.


I am also part of many networks, international and institutional activities:

- Executive council - MUSABA Foundation

MUSABA is a non-profit art foundation founded by artists Nik Spatari and Hiske Maas decades ago

- Political Science Editorial Committee - EuropeNow

EuropeNow is the new online monthly journal by CES

- Coordinator Junior Research Group - TAB Risk

TAB is a network which gathers together diplomats and experts of international studies


I speak fluently English, Spanish and Italian.
