Throughout Gasparrini’s studies in philosophy, his doctorate and academic career in several universities in central Italy, he met texts and figures from various feminisms, and began a path of deep personal criticism. Afterwards, he devoted himself to popularizing gender issues, especially for male audiences, and to teach on those same topics.
He conducts seminars, workshops and laboratories in universities, social centers, companies, schools, unions, professional orders, and self-organized groups; he is also a regular contributor to both specialist and general audience magazines, both online and in print.
