Member of the Direction of the "Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica" (INdAM) in Rome. Member of the Direction of the Scientific-Literary Institution Vieusseux. Member of  the Scientific Academy “La Colombaria”. First from November 2002 and, a second time, from November 2005 to October 2008, Dean of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Firenze. Actually, since February 2010, President of the Scientific Commettee of the “UniversitÓ dell’EtÓ Libera” organized by the City of Firenze. Since 2013 Director of the "Gruppo Nazionale per l'Analisi Matematica, la ProbabilitÓ e le loro Applicazioni" (GNAMPA) of the "Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica" (INdAM).

Author of several books of didactic and scientific type in Mathematics, and of several scientific articles published in specialized international journals. The main scientific interests are: elliptic pde's, variational inequalities, inverse problems, convex analysis, G-convergence and homogenization, eigenvalues of the Laplacian, parabolic mean curvature equation, nonconvex problems of the calculus of variations, semicontinuity of quasiconvex integrals (with subcritical growth too), regularity under nonstandard growth conditions: anisotropic functionals and pde equations, p,q-growth conditions, general growth conditions; vector-valued variational problems without quasiconvexity conditions, variational problems arising from optimal foraging, pde equations and systems of implicit type, Jacobian determinants of singular maps. Recently he found a variational formulation for solutions to parabolic equations and systems which also implies existence of weak solutions under general assumptions.

Member of the editorial board of some international journals, among them Nonlinear Analysis: Real World Applications NONRWA.
