I'm a young designer. And in Italy you're considered young till the age of 45...so I'm probably a very young one. I'm interested in design and its process on a wide set of themes, from product to medical, from transportation to web, keeping an eye open on art, photography and craftsmanship. I believe this is the only way to really specialize, to transfer ideas and processes and to cross-pollinate projects and cultures. My studies and my education touched many of the European countries like Germany and Finland where I spent two years in the frame of MEDes (Master of European Design) program. Now that I'm back I like to keep my contacts with the wide network of people, designers and artists I met trying to keep my mind wide open. I'm currently working as a freelance and I'm collaborating as Assistant Professor at Politecnico di Milano. I'm trying to focus my current research on sustainability and slowness.
