Matteo has joined the Centre for European and Comparative Legal Studies (CECS) at the Faculty of Law to work on his project entitled ‘Posting of workers in the framework of the provision of services, beyond the Directive 96/71/EC: The needs of fair competition and effective prevention of social dumping while ensuring adequate protection of workers' rights in the Internal Market’, supervised by Professor Ulla Neergaard.

The object of the project is to provide an in-depth analysis of the evolving regulatory framework concerning the multifaceted and intensely debated phenomenon of transnational posting of workers. In the light of the forthcoming revision of the Directive 96/71/EC, it will investigate which legal and policy adjustments may be appropriate in order to ensure an effective solution to the several issues that have emerged, while preserving a balance between the economic and social needs involved.

Matteo graduated in Law (Master's Degree) in 2013 at the University of Turin (Italy), orienting his academic career mainly towards the field of European Union Law, with a Master´s thesis titled ‘Freedom of Movement for Services and Gambling’. Between 2013 and 2015 he accomplished the lawyer apprenticeship in the Law Firm ´Studio Legale Bruno Mellano´, in Cuneo (Italy), and in 2014 he carried out an Internship at the Centre of International and European Economic Law (CIEEL) in Thessaloniki (Greece), ended with the publication of his legal article titled ´Gioco d’azzardo nell’Unione Europea: Recenti sviluppi e prospettive di armonizzazione´ (´Gambling in the European Union: recent developments and perspectives of harmonization´), in Hellenic Review of European Law, 2015 International Edition.
