Finally, I have a blog on L’Espresso called "Sustainable Objective".I am a psychologist. I has always been interested in the development of human coexistence systems. In dealing with relationships and how they organize the multiform reality around us, I have always put at the center of my attention the enhancement of diversity and creativity, that i concieve as tools for growth and transformation. I have been working in the Human Resources area for years as a development consultant, dealing with both training and selection processes. In particular, I have carried out Change Management projects in various public and private organizations. In recent years I have worked on interaction design and gamification, developing experiments in virtual environments and complex intervention projects able to integrate technology, both as a medium and as a language.

As Head of the Per Formare's Project Design Area, together with my colleagues, I pursue an idea of innovation based on the enhancement of relationships and the development of organizational systems by integrating project design, social innovation and interpretative skills.Founder of Per Formare, for over 25 years I have been dealing with national and European planning in the field of social inclusion, employability, human resources.

As pedagogist I intervene as a facilitator of the change that characterises the labour market in its forms, paradigms, contents, meanings, values and on how these influence and modify choices, planning and identity of the people who act in it. The biggest challenge is the ability to integrate and enhance diversity, that I consider a great source of enrichment, perspectives and values.
