I am a Service & Experience Designer fond of people, tourism, culture, innovation.
I love to mix them all, and make a living out of that.
Here you will find a selection of events I curated
All of them saw me designing, organizing, managing activities so to make sure client was satisfied, business outcomes were reached and participants had fun, lots of fun.

Maker Faire Rome - the European Edition
Rome, 2015

Maker Faire is the greatest show (and tell) on Earth – a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the #maker movement. It’s a place where people of all ages and backgrounds gather together to show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Innovation Week, Rome 2014

A place for innovators, coders, hackers, makers, futurists, business angels and anyone who has a story to tell (or to make) about the future.
A series of 11 events ranging from themed hackathon to UX workshops to Social Innovation Cities gatherings, all inspired by an "open" philosophy.

Trento, 2013 + 2014

TravelNEXT is a format born to provide industry players with insight and tools to better understand the travel scenario and the transformation is going through thanks to the uprising of digital and social communication.
TravelNEXT supports industry players who may find themselves unprepared to face those challenges through talks, seminars and workshops (the Miinister thought he could learn something, too!)

E.F.I. European Forum for Innovation
Rome, 2011

EFI is the European Alliance for Innovation annual event aimed at those who are curious about the future and see innovation as the unique tool to make it bright and prosperous for all.
3 days, 6 tracks, 5 speaker/trainer per session, several hundred liters of coffee.

Brindisi, 2014 + 2015

X.LAB is a fornat of unusual training sessions; a mix of interactive activities alongside theoretical workshops, socializing and outdoor explorations to practice the tools and methodologies taught.
The goal is to increase the reputation of a destination by leveraging the skills of its citizens, so to foster a more sustainable approach to tourism.
Here, participants were about "digitally invading" an olive grove.
