Andrea Placidi

Comparative Literature

Hey, Wilsonites!

I hail from the marbles of Rome, Italy where I grew up walking the footsteps of the emperors, popes and intellectuals that would later concern me professionally. During the wee hours, I sometimes find myself a hairsbreadth from unearthing vital clues to deciphering ancient and mysterious texts or sating the soul having those life-changing late-night conversations with friends.

When not at work cracking arcane texts, I enjoy cooking plant-based dishes, taking strolls, reading science-fiction, keeping up to date with the tech revolution and getting my hands on self-improvement books. 2016 is my second year as an RGS and am looking forward to getting to know everyone. Jonathan and I are residents in 111 1939 Hall, so look out for the events, activities and study breaks we will be organizing.

Come up and say hi any time this Fall – I look forward to meeting all of you!
