"I'm interested in cultural heritage policy in Europe, and Luiss offers ideal setting for studying it. It's in Rome, which is the heart of civilization in Europe and has fantastic heritage to look at. It's a social science university, so you can use different disciplines to study an area that is – by nature – multidisciplinary."
