Sono una sociologa della cultura e della religione, interessata alla mobilità spirituale e religiosa. Ho condotto diverse ricerche post-dottorato sulla patrimonializzazione delle eredità religiose e sulla valorizzazione del patrimonio culturale. I miei attuali interessi riflettono tre principali linee di ricerca: il valore e la natura del patrimonio religioso e storico-culturale; la patrimonializzazione come processo produttivo di cambiamento e innovazione all'interno delle religioni e della spiritualità; l'impegno volontario come base dell'azione, sia all'interno che all'esterno delle istituzioni religiose, in relazione al campo più ampio del turismo culturale.

I am a sociologist of culture and religion, interested in spiritual and religious mobility. I have conducted several post-doctoral researches on the heritagisation of religious heritage and the valorisation of cultural heritage. My current interests reflect three main lines of research: the value and nature of religious and cultural-historical heritage; heritagisation as a productive process of change and innovation within religions and spirituality; 3) voluntary engagement as a basis for action, both within and outside religious institutions, in relation to the broader field of cultural tourism.
