I hold a Master's degree in Law and a Ph.D. in Philosophy of Law from the University of Padua (Italy).

Currently I am Researcher in Philosophy of Law (Legal informatics) in the Department of Legal sciences at the University of Udine (Italy).




My study aims to bridge philosophy, computer science and law, focusing on the struggle between human nature and new technologies. Recently I am investigating the theoretical implications of ICTs on «social ontology», the concept of law as an instrument of social control as emerging from the «peer to peer economy», the use of folksonomies in legal information management, and the theoretical aspects of Digital evidence.

I teach Legal Informatics in the Faculty of Law of Udine. In my lectures on cyberlaw, which I study since 2000, I bring out the critical profiles of the «Information Society» challenging the most recent jurisprudence.

I am also a Lawyer. I am registered in the Bar Association of Udine (Italy) in the special section (full time academic researchers and professors).
