Serena Ferrando’s research focuses primarily on water and modern/contemporary Italian poetry. Her book project, City of Water. How Poetry Shaped Milan, offers an original ecocritical-cultural narrative of the relationship between poetry and nature in the city of Milan, Italy and three Milanese poets. Ferrando directs a digital humanities exhibit about Milan’s water canals called Navigli Project. She also studies environmental and experimental noisescapes and offers a course titled “Noisemakers! Tracing the History of Modern Music in Italy” where students build noise instruments and develop multimedia projects that utilize sound mapping to create a multisensory experience of the world. Her publications span across the fields of literature, ecocriticism, and digital humanities.
