Welcome to my page!

My name is Lorenzo Ferrari and I am 30 years old. I currently live in Trento (Italy).

I am a historian of contemporary Europe and international relations. My PhD thesis has dealt with the history of the external relations of the European Community, I have recently turned it into a book published by Peter Lang. Currently I focus my research on the international activity of the Western European countries during the Cold War era, in particular with regard to the United Nations; you can read more about my research here. I have been visiting fellow at the University of Turku (Finland) in August-December 2016.

Beside doing research, I work as a journalist and editor. Starting from May 2017, I work for OBC Transeuropa, focusing on media freedom issues on one side and on data journalism on the other side. I also work with the Zanichelli publishing house, preparing history textbooks and teaching tools, and sometimes I translate academic articles/books from English to Italian. I take part in a public history project concerning international history, and I blog for the Italian newspaper Il Post as well as for VoxEurop.

I’m always happy to consider new projects and forms of collaboration, so if you’d like to exchange some ideas just contact me.
