Acoustic ecology workshops

I’m an Italian freelance educator, artist and a community-engaged researcher
I professionally work with audiovisual storytelling, sound art, filmmaking, theatre and poetry performance, creative workshops.
Acoustic ecology is part of my experience.

I conduct workshops in both urban and rural environments. In order to explore places and communities, I usually join together both field recording and ethnographic research.
With kids I generally try to follow educational paths starting from soundscapes, visual art and ending up in capturing traditional memories shared with the local community through performances and exhibitions.
My goal is to develop active listening, being also inspired by the soundscape research performed among the others by Raymond Murray Schafer, Hildegard Westerkamp and Pauline Oliveros.

Between 2011 and 2019 I participated as a speaker in international conferences in Italy, Germany, Serbia and Switzerland (Firenze, Roma, Catania, Rovereto, Oberhausen, Belgrade, Leuk) on the theme of acoustic ecology as a teaching method organized by the Forum Klanglandschaft association among others.
