Ambrogio Camozzi Pistoja received his B.A. in Medieval and Humanist Philology from the University of Milan (Italy), his M.Phil. in European Literatures and Cultures, and his Ph.D. in Italian Studies from the University of Cambridge.

He is the author of two monographs on the medieval traditions of Alexander the Great, in Italian culture: Vita di Alessandro con figure (Brepols, 2019) and Dante and the Medieval Alexander (forthcoming).

As a MSCA Fellow (Sapienza University), Camozzi Pistoja is completing Satyrando, a research project on verbal violence in Italian city states of the Late Middle Ages. The project examines normative theories (legal, moral and aesthetic), criminal records and the literary production of the time, to reconstruct the role of artistic violence in Italian medieval societies.
