"I am law professor at University of Palermo (Italy), where I teach Comparative law and Economic analysis of law; Faculty Affiliate at Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3) - Open University of Catalonia, where I am part of the research team on Digital commons (Dimmons); and member of the Scientific Committee of LabGov (Laboratory for the Governance of the Commons).
My latest works focus on collaborative economy, p2p market regulation and commons-based peer production. Beside scholarly works, in this last year I published a Report on behalf of EU Commission and a Paper for the EU Parliament is also forthcoming. Further, I am working on the draft Resolution on the Collaborative economy by the European Parliament.
My current researches are mainly focused on the regulation of p2p markets in the European Single Market and on the impact of the collaborative economy on urban environment. My last article on “The Sharing Economy as a Means to Urban Commons” (7 Comparative Law Review 1 (2016))."
