DiPaolo

Research:

The main focus of Prof. Di Paolo's research is a critique of traditional roles and conventional representations of women explored within the patriarchal symbolic (see, for example, articles on Pirandello, Lampedusa, and Fenoglio). Other works include the study of images in the context of the authors' related literary universe (see for example articles on D'Annunzio, Betti, and Silone).
