He received an M.A. in Italian with a graduate certificate in Jewish Culture and Society at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, an M.A. in Religious Pedagogy at Università Pontificia Salesiana, Rome. He earned a Laurea in Philosophy (Philosophy and History) at Università degli Studi di Catania, Italy. His research interests include Jewish-Christian relations and religion in Italian culture.
