THE VIDEOGAME
Film, play, & co-create with your smartphone

The VIDEOGAME is a new audiovisual interactive experience for creating crowdsourced videos during EU events and conferences.

  Because when you let people co-create with simple accessible digital tools, what you get is the most beautiful human nature.

SCHOOL OF THE FUTURE
Tech-education for SMART children

The “School of the Future” helps young citizens tackles the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities that have risen with the EU Digital Single Market.

THE PARTISAN
A mountain, a man, a smartphone

I spent my last two summer holidays on the mountains between Italy, Austria, and Slovenia to break the boundaries between smartphone videomaking and storytelling.

/EAGLE
A drone 'n' love trilogy

I thought it was love. So I started flying high. I wanted to get as close to the sun as possible. I crashed my first - unfortunately not the last - drone and it still hurts.

  Because drone technologies - ranging from aerial shooting, to drone races and DIY design - matter.

HOUSE OF CATS
Cat power in the capital of Europe

A cross-media campaign about pop culture, politics, and power in the capital of Europe, where cats - not people - have the power. Basically, I turned my PhD thesis into visuals.

  Because internet folks only care about cats, so give them a cat if you want their attention.

GENOA CLUB BRUXELLES
Rebranding my own football passion

After studying philosophy, travelling the world, and tasting all the beauty that humans have to offer, Genoa cricket&football club still remains the sweetest thing.

A TRILOGY ABOUT MODERNITY
The day soociology met mobile videomaking

I started a Phd, because I still had so much to read to understand. However, I was sure that videos were the best possible output of my sociological observations.

  Because socio-political analysis is not only understanding, but also letting people understand.

DOT 2.0
A CMS for Open Access in social sciences

I used to believe in engaged open academics. So I created and managed a Joomla platform to allow PhD candidates and scholars share their work online.

  Because people will never get out of their bubble, unless you show them something better from outside.

NO FILTER FEST
A festival about web, copyleft, and sharing

It was during my MA in International Relations in Bologne that web and digital really started appealing me. Open source, copyleft, Creative Commons: what's that??

  Because, when you are a student, (digital) change does not scare you, it triggers you.

THE BATTLE OF GENOA
A 19 year-old reporter during the G8 summit

Two weeks after the end of high school, I was 19 in my hometown and suddenly found myself working as photo-reporter amidst violence, blood, and tear gas.

  Because adult life started when a guy like me was shot dead 200 metres away from where I was.
