Giulia completed her PhD at King’s College London in 2015, where she also held an Analysis Trust Studentship. In 2016, she joined the department of Philosophy at Southampton.
Before moving to the UK with her partner Gabriele, Giulia grew up in Brescia, Italy, and then studied in Milan (San Raffaele) and Pisa (Scuola Normale Superiore), while also being a visiting student at Oxford and NYU.
Giulia works primarily on the intersection between philosophy of language and metaphysics. In particular, she focuses on the nature of contents, propositions and facts and the accounts of propositions and facts in the history of Early Analytic Philosophy.

Giulia works primarily on the intersection between philosophy of language and metaphysics.
The aim of her research is to understand the relationship between three fundamental kinds of entities: objects in the world, thoughts about those objects, and language about objects and thoughts. In particular, she focuses on the nature of contents, propositions and facts and many of her publications aim at showing that there are no propositions.
Giulia is also very interested in the history of Early Analytic Philosophy and in particular in the theories of contents and facts of some female figures, such as Dorothy Wrinch and Susanne Langer.
When she wants to treat herself, Giulia reads Rudolf Carnap, Susanne Langer or Bertrand Russell.
Giulia teaches a variety of modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
