Research interests

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. She is also interested in, and dreams about being able to work on, non-Western approaches to these matters, in particular from the Chinese tradition.

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. When she wants to treat herself, Giulia reads Rudolf Carnap, Susanne Langer or Bertrand Russell. 

Recently, she also developed side interests in philosophical questions concerning disability.

PhD supervision

Giulia welcomes enquires and is happy to supervise students in the philosophy of logic and language, metaphysics, and history of Early Analytic Philosophy.
