My name is Matteo Calabrese. I’m an alumnus of Università della Calabria, where I received my minor degree in Lettere e Beni Culturali with a dissertation titled “Lingua e cultura degli Oschi tra caratteri indigeni e influenze latine: biculturalismo e bilinguismo”, examining Osco-Latin biculturalism and bilingualism through the analysis of historical and literary sources and Oscan inscriptions, and my major degree in Scienze dell’Antichità with a dissertation titled “Lingua e cultura degli Enotri alla luce dell’iscrizione paleoitalica di Tortora”, dealing with the reconstruction of the Oenotrian inscription from Tortora. My research interests include Indo-European linguistics, with particular regard to Italic languages, Classics and sociolinguistics. In addition to my research interests, I like reading, watching films and listening to music.
