A short presentation of yourself: 
As phd student, I study the relationships between politics and religion around the sites of memory in North Adriatic border region in late modern age. This means that I have discovered how the National tradition developed in German and Austrian culture in 19th century, became a foundamental paradigm both in Italian and Slovenian civil religions of the region, until the second half of 20th century. Using both Italian and Slovenian sources, I am trying to analyze the relation of Italian and Slovenian border society with their history and memory, and how these influences had affected public opinion and collective conscience. As contractor researcher and university student (specifically with my diploma in Social History), I studied the history of North Adriatic ports in late modern age. I particularly paid attention in the history of work, the organization of dockers, and the relationship between that harbours and their vital connection with the center-European inland.
