My educational background is in environmental and land planning engineering (MS 1993), and hydrology (PhD 1997), with a specialization in Geographic Information Systems and environmental databases.
Since 1982 I have been using information and communication technologies, using these as a primary working tool since 1994.
In 1998 I started to investigate the relationship between people and technologies (and especially information technologies). In the development of such topics, since 2006 I started to propose activities with an increasingly growing component of citizen participation, applied to cultural, environmental, and open innovation issues, with a focus on lesser known resources.
I am an Italian citizen, but since 1967 I had experiences abroad, mostly for professional reasons. For the period I spent in Italy, since 1993 I have been working mainly for international projects.
In 2011 I relocated in Southern Tuscany, from where my family is originally from.
