Andrea Alesiani has a Bachelor's in International Relations from “Roma Tre” University (2013) and an MSc in Economics from the University of Tor Vergata (2017).
Has been active for more than 15 years in the field of historical reenactment/living history with several associations, museums, archaeological sites and universities in Italy and Europe.
His formal training in ancient languages is limited to high school, with the (pro dolor!) traditional grammar-translation method but he kept studying Latin and (some) Greek occasionally as an autodidact. He had not been in contact with the Latin-speaking community until 2020, when he met Luke Amadeus Ranieri, Stefano Vittori and Marina Garanin, who have been his mentors and allowed him to reach some fluency in Latin. Since then, he contributes to their YouTube channels, he regularly hosts the Legio XIII podcast with Luke Ranieri. In 2022, he participated as the tritagonist in Vittori’s Latin tragedy Medeae Daemones, in the role of Creon, king of Corinth.
He is also one of the hosts of the Youtube channel Liberi Oltre le Illusioni (65k+ subscribers), commenting on Italian and international economics and politics, and advocating for the support of the Ukrainian and Iranian people.
