Mi formación académica de antropóloga social se ha desorrollado en Italia, LSE (Londres) y St Andrews, donde he recibido mi doctorado.

Mi principal tema de investigación se ha centrado en una comunidad insular de Chiloé (Comuna de Quinchao), donde he conducido investigación etnográfica durante mas de 10 años. Mis intereses incluyen los detalles de la socialidad – la manera de relacionarse de los individuos en una comunidad – el parentesco y la religión. Mis intereses en procesos religiosos me han conducido a investigar la conversión al Evangelismo, reacciones comunitarias a la presencia de misioneros católicos, y el culto de un santo local.

Recientemente me he interesado en modernidad indígena y procesos de aprendizaje entre niños.

Mi segundo campo de investigación es el parentesco, enfocado en casos de adopción internacional – niños chilenos adoptados por familias italianas. Me he interesado por las ideas de identidad étnica y cultural, maternidad, así como por los lazos culturales versus lazos biológicos entre hijos adoptivos, padres adoptivos y padres biológicos.


I have been trained as a Social Anthropologist in Cagliari, Italy, at the London School of Economics and Political Science, University of London, and at the University of St Andrews.

My main research has focused on a remote insular community in Chiloé, where I have been conducting ethnographic research for more than 10 years. My interests range from sociality – the intricate way people build and develop the way to relate to each other – to kinship and religion. For what concerns religion, I have written about conversion to evangelical Christianity, Catholic miss ionisation as well as a local cult of a miraculous Catholic saint.

More recently I have been interested in investigating indigenous modernity and children’s processes of learning.

My second, more recent stream of research has been on kinship and particularly international adoption. I am focussing on a specific episode of intercountry adoption where Chilean-born children have been adopted by Italian families. Main themes of this project are ethnic and national identity, ideas of kinship ties and of motherhood on adoptees as well as adoptive parents, and biological parents.
