After the main RSD7 conference “Research on Systemic Design” organized by and taking place at Politecnico Torino, the following first RSD De-Conference was organized by the MonViso Insitute in Ostana, Valle Po – about 2h from Torino. As MVI Team Member I was really excited to have about 50 people among PhD students, Researchers, Professors […]
Experimental study of physicochemicalchanges in water by iterative contact with hydrophilic polymers: A comparison betweenCellulose and Nafion
Water kept in contact with cellulose has not been a “juicy” research topic until now. This is surprising because cellulose is a major component of the cell walls in green plants. It is also a common material used in many artificial systems, e.g., filters. In this work, we review some of our experimental results and […]
It was the 2012 when I started thinking at something new out of the Cinelli Bootleg line. I was really excited and conscious that the real Bootleg must interpret signals from the world and deliver a tool arising from these influences that would allow exploring the world. To achieve this I wanted to go back […]
I’m really glad to have become part of the Monviso Institute Team. The Monviso Institute is an evolving playful mountain hub for research, education and entrepreneurship in sustainability transformations and social-ecological design. find out more at: monviso-institute.org
At the latest Water Conference held in Sofia, Bulgaria on October 26-29, 2017, I’ve presented some new findings in water purification treatment by adopting the Free Vortex Technology, during the poster session. It has been a great pleasure to be part of this amazing Conference where a lot of new isights on water behavior have […]
I’ve joined the RSD Conference for the first time this year presenting my Research on Systemic Design Approach on Water Management. The RSD6 was held at Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO) in Oslo, Norway (October 18-20, 2017). The theme this year encompassed the contexts for flourishing in democratic societies, and exploring the opportunities for systemic design in: […]
A hydrophilic powder, QELBY, from the feldspar family of clay minerals was investigated for its ability to form structured or exclusion-zone (EZ) water.
