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 Sound Studies and Sound Art practice.
My primary concern relates to critical listening of urban sonic environment as carrier of knowledge, useful for the acknowledgment of urban issues affecting vulnerable areas and citizens.
I intend to develop a research method able to inquiry critical issues concerning urban and cultural transformations, such as depopulation, segregation, and expiration of local identities and intangible cultural heritages.
Through articles, lectures, field recordings, performances, installations, and listening sessions I aim to foster sonic awareness, as an empowerment tool for institutions, and local communities, thus exploring new potentials for urban regeneration, participatory processes and local development.
