Loriana Salierno obtained a first Master's degree in Philosophy of Intercultural Communication and a second Master's degree in Latin Philology, both cum laude at University of Naples "L'Orientale". Her PhD-thesis will focus on the evolution of Latin in the Qur’ān translation of Ludovico Marracci, from his personal manuscripts until the published edition in 1698 of the Alcorani Textus Universus. This edition constituted a model for the modern language translations of the Qur’ān.
