Emilio Carlo Maria Capettini
I was trained as a classical philologist at the University of Pisa and at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa. My BA dissertation, which resulted in the publication of a short note (“La ‛vera’ Andromaca: Eur. Tro. 731-732”, MD 58, 2007, pp. 217-223), was devoted to the analysis of the transformations of the Homeric Andromache by Greek and Latin tragedians, whereas my MA thesis examined Achilles Tatius’ novel, focusing on narrative strategy and characterization devices.
