I am an architect, musician, sound artist, and scholar. I have a PhD in Regional planning and public policies, and I’m currently Postdoctoral research fellow at Iuav University of Venice, Italy.
My research deals with the relationship between Urban Studies and Sound Studies. In particular, I’m interested in collaborative and participatory approach to urban policy analysis and design through methodologies emerging within Urban Planning, Urban Sociology and Sound Art practice.
Sound is central to my artistic and academic practice, as I intend critical listening a pivotal tool for the investigation of urban and cultural transformations affecting particularly vulnerable areas, such as depopulation, segregation and loss of local identities.
Through articles, lectures, compositions, performances, and installations I aim to foster sonic awareness and to empower institutions and local communities, exploring new potentials for urban regeneration, participatory processes and local development.
