I’m an Italian audio-visual artist, educator, poet and performer, film and theatre director.
As a freelance expert, I spend much of the time collaborating with schools. I research with kids on the relationship between soundscapes, imagination and collective memory of the community. My goal is to develop the awareness of active listening, being also inspired by the research on soundscape’s studies.
I’ve been creating several international poetry performances and theatrical shows held in all Europe, South Korea, Brazil.
My sound installations and films have been exhibited in Italy (Rome, Florence, Trento, Lecce) and all around the world.
As an author and multimedia expert I worked for Rai Radiotelevisione Italiana in Trento and Milan, for University Luiss Guido Carli in Rome, for several foundations and museums.
