has obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Theology at the Facoltà di Teologia dell’Italia Settentrionale (2002) and a PhD in Philosophy at Università degli Studi di Genova (2008). Currently, he does research work in History of Philosophy at Università degli Studi di Genova where he teach Tendencies of Contemporary Thought. He has authored three essays and about fifty papers published in journals or in collections of essays that concern contemporary thinking. He especially researches in epistemology, particularly addressing the problem of intentionality (Wittgenstein, Tommaso e la cura dell’intenzionalità, MEF, Firenze 2009; From Justification to Warrant, towards Virtue Epistemology, «Epistemologia», 34 (2011), pp. 5-28) as well as analytic philosophy of religion, conducting inquiries into its epistemological aspects (Una nuova teologia naturale. La proposta degli epistemologi riformati e dei tomisti wittgensteiniani, Carocci, Roma 2011). He has investigated the public role of religion (M. Damonte, Confrontation Between Civilization, Religions and Professions of Faith, «Études Maritainiennes / Maritain Studies», 25 (2009), pp. 46-57) and the philosophy of prayer (Homo organs. Antropologia della preghiera, Fondazione Centro Studi Campostrini, Verona 2014). The results of his research have been discussed at various international conventions, above all Europe-wide, thanks to The European Society for Philosophy of Religion’s biennial conventions. He has recently proposed a new approach to natural theology (Towards a New Natural Theology: Between Reformed Epistemology and Wittgensteinian Thomism, in S.T. Kołodziejczyk, J. Salamon (eds.), Knowledge, Action, Pluralism, Peter Lang, Frankfurt am Main 2013, pp. 113-134); for this reason, he was also called upon to study the Mediaeval sources of analytic philosophy of religion.
