Department:

Chiara Piazzesi studied at the École Normale Supérieure of Pisa and at the University of Pisa. In 2005 at the University of Salento (Italy), she defended her Ph.D. thesis on the philosophical and sociological theories that, during the 20th century, established a relation between power and habituation process. Since 2008, she has been dedicated to a research project on the forms and languages of erotic love in the contemporary West. In 2014 she directed an issue of the journal “Sociologie et sociétés” on the theme of “intimacy, couples and love.” She is also editing a collective volume on erotic love (in collaboration with Antonella Balestra).
