In these few pages I intended to retrace three of the projects of study, research and writing that I shared with Monia, starting from the seminar that made us met at the beginning of summer 1999: Sconfinare (1999), Unidiversità (2000-2002) and Coltivare la differenza (2011). For those who have already had the opportunity to know them, it will be a way to rediscover what - in my opinion -have caught important points of analysis and identified fertile fields of research, almost always ahead of its time and still current today. For those who these projects are all to be discovered, I have chosen to link each one to a precise concept, namely those of border, identity and difference, all within the framework of gender studies and the transdisciplinarity that characterized their analysis. I hope that the bibliography that I mentioned can be useful those are interested in these themes and in Monia’s work, which obviously does not it is exhausted in the work carried out for these three projects.
