My name is Andrea and I was born in 1992 in a small seaside town in Abruzzo on the east cost of Italy.
I have been always fascinated by any forms of art and particularly curious about the complexity of nature.
Following my studies in ISIA Rome and MOME in Budapest I moved to London where I worked as graphic designer and taken part of The Urban Garden Community Project. through these experiences I learnt what design research and practice can do for social innovation and experienced how many complex relations artifacts can reveal.
Moving to the Free University of Bozen I graduated in the Master of Eco-Social Design, started seeing my self as a observer, focused on society behaviour and its environmental implications. My short experience in the field of social design drove me to believe strongly in my ideas beyond any doubt.
My on-going project, following the Master thesis research, is focused on hemp agricultural leftover as precious resource for new local economies and global market for bio-plastic and natural fibers.
