I have a degree in Environmental Sciences and a Master of Applied Science in Geographic Information Systems. In my professional life I have been applying IT tools (GIS, programming, database management, Remote Sensing and satellite images analysis) to conventional environmental monitoring and conservation.
In 2009 I started deeply questioning the entire system in which conventional environmental conservation was operating, understanding we were working on the symptoms of the problem at best, if not contributing to the problem itself.
I finally found in the forest gardening approach a serious attempt and step towards redesign our society into a truly sustainable model fully integrated within nature processes, balance, richness and beauty.
Since then I have been reading, studying, practicing and exchanging information and experience about forest gardening and sustainable agriculture with people active in this field.
Since 2012 I have been working on the Picasso Food Forest project in Parma, Italy.
