My main research interests are in the areas of lexical semantics and figurative language. I have worked on the Italian verbal lexicon and on the linguistic expression of sensory experience. Currently, I am particularly interested in synaesthetic metaphors and in the linguistic and perceptual mechanisms that may explain their properties.
