Cecilia Luzi obtained a B.A. in Ethnology and Social Anthropology at the University of Siena, Italy. Later, she moved to Paris to the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS) where she completed her M.A. in Social Anthropology.
She also holds a B.A. in Japanese Studies from the Institut National des Langues et Civilisations Orientales (INALCO), Paris. During her M.A. there, she received a scholarship for one year exchange program with Kyōritsu Joshi University in Tōkyō.
While in Japan, she had the chance to live among communities of rural in-migrants in the prefecture of Wakayama, and thus decided to focus her study on the phenomenon of urban-rural migrations in contemporary Japan. Her PhD research is conducted inside the project Urban-rural migration and rural revitalization in Japan.
