"Finitely accessible categories and approximations"
We review the main properties of finitely accessible categories. We also discuss exactly definable categories and show their dual nature with respect to finitely accessible categories. Finally, we give some results on the existence of covers and envelopes in such contexts.

"Quiver Grassmannians and cluster algebras"
This is a joint work with Francesco Esposito. We study some projective
varieties which are closed subvarieties of partial flag varieties and called quiver Grassmannians. In the last years many authors have noticed the importance of quiver Grassmannians in the theory of cluster algebras but many geometric aspects, like the existence of a cellular decomposition, the computation of Betti numbers and Euler characteristic are still open. We make the first step in this direction by studying the "smallest" interesting quiver Grassmannians. Surprisingly this approach has an interesting counterpart in the theory of cluster algebras.
