What I’m doing

I currently work at Accurat leading a team focused on data visualization research, interactive reports, and data journalism projects for media companies, think tanks and foundations. My main activity in the team is to define and constantly align the strategy underneath projects with customers, market and the overarching company vision and goals.

What I did

Before my arrival at Accurat in 2018, in 2017 I worked at The Visual Agency, another Milanese data visualization firm where I started my professional adventure around data. This experience ignited a latent passion in news, media and data journalism and I can only be grateful to Ruggero Castagnola and Tommaso Guadagni for letting me to work on several data journalism projects published on Visualeyed.

Before my move to Milan, in 2014 I worked at Iperstudio, a collective studio based in Venice which I co-founded with Marco Mezzavilla and Fabrizio Goglia. Always in Venice, I collaborated with the design firm Studio Visuale.

Just after my MDes graduation in Visual and Multimedia Communication at Iuav University of Venice where I attended the IxD program, in 2013 I co-founded Mapnaut in Trento with Damiano Gui and Vladimir Shulyak.

Before moving in Venice I got a BDes in Indutrial Design at l’Università degli Studi della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli in 2010 I attended an internship at Zelig, a design agency in Naples.
