I'm a sociologist, teacher and electronic artist. In 2001 I was one of the founding members of the Milan-based experimental collective otolab with whom I investigate visual dramaturgic representation of sound. I teach theories, methodologies and tecniques of the audiovisual performance at NABA in Milan and in several other seminars and courses around Italy. I hold a PhD in Urban European Studies at the University of Miano-Bicocca; my research in urban sociology investigates the relationships among city, creative economy and social innovation processes, with a special focus on underground artists co-optation in mainstream markets. Now I'm a post-doc researcher at the University of Milan and I work on the EU funded project EDUfashion and its community Openwear, dealing with: P2P economies; crowdsourcing; desktop and distributed manufacturing; clothing; and fashion.
