Serena Ferrando’s research on water and contemporary Italian poetry has birthed the Navigli Project, an eco-digital interactive map of Milan’s waterways. She also studies environmental and experimental noisescapes and curates Noisemakers!, a multimedia project that utilizes sound mapping to create a multisensory experience of the world. Her publications span from literature to ecocriticism to digital humanities.
Her current book project "City of Water. Milan in the Poetry of Alda Merini, Daria Menicanti, and Milo De Angelis" is an ecocritical study of water in the urban environment of the Lombard capital.
