An hybrid mind can more easily face the complexity of new challenges, designing strategic solutions, facilitating processes and tailoring new business opportunities.

My experience includes a wide range of disciplines: from product design to UX and service design, crossing digital fabrication technologies and curatorial activities, together with the passion of teaching. This may sounds a bit confusing, but it's a foundamental aspects of what I call "polymorphism": the attitude of reprogramming myself in front of new design challenges that always helps me and the teams I have worked with to generate new ideas and develop innovative systems.

Abstract

Graduated in Industrial Design at Politecnico di Milano, I have attended specialization courses in Design for Interaction at TUDelft (Netherlands). I am the coordinator of the Experience Design Academy of POLI.design and I act as tutor and design mentor at the higher education courses of User Experience Design, App Design & Development and Basics of Design for Better Innovation Services: working together with the faculty, I assist students in the development and prototyping of interactive concepts. Since 2011 I have co-founded Tecnificio, a maker facility that uses digital manufacturing technologies, such as 3D printing, to create special projects for new craft experiences. I have worked as a strategic design consultant for agencies, design galleries, private and public institutions including: Politecnico di Milano, FFForward, Estilos, Strategic Footprints, Subalterno1, Regione Lombardia, Banca IFIS Impresa. I am lecturer in Design Methodology and Service Design at NABA, Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano. Some of my works have been exhibited at Yerba Buena Center of Arts (San Francisco), Palazzo Ducale (Venice), Triennale di Milano, Miart 2017 (Milan), Maison Folie (Mons), Lingotto (Turin).
