  1. The design and delivery of (transnational) exchange and learning activities


Graduated in Cultural Economics and Entrepreneurship at the Erasmus University of Rotterdam, I am a public value designer, dedicated to local development policies and strategies.

I have led the department of Research and Innovation of Materahub, curating several European projects, from Horizon Europe, to COSME and Creative Europe. Specifically, within this project dimension, I had the opportunity to design data-oriented methodologies, as in the case of IMPACTOUR, developing a platform for supporting public administrations’ local development strategy, or DROP, where designing and implementing co-governance approaches to deprived areas.

I am a social impact evaluator, leveraging SROI and the VBA (Value Based Approach) methodologies to organisations such as Matera European Capital of Culture 2019 or the Nuto Revelli Foundation.

Furthermore, I worked for the Municipality of Bari, fulfilling project management tasks during an URBACT project (Com.unity.Lab).

I teach for the Cultural Management Master of Feltrinelli Foundation and to the Master of Advanced Education on Private Cultural Heritage of Intesa San Paolo.

From 2021, I am an affiliate researcher of the Metalab Harvard.
