Eva Del Soldato was trained in Philosophy and Intellectual History at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa. Her research is primarily devoted to Renaissance thought and culture, with a special attention to the Aristotelian and Platonic traditions.

She is the author of the monograph Simone Porzio (Edizioni di Storia e Letteratura 2010) and of several articles and editions. She is currently completing a monograph on Antonio Brucioli and the Venetian printing world, which takes into consideration the spread of the vernacular as a language of elevated discourse.
