Outside academia I worked three years in the nautical world where I travelled a great deal especially when I was team manager of Metamarine during the Powerboat P1 World Championship. This experience gave me responsibility to organize and create a cohesive team, a feature that I learned when captain of my football team when we won 4 Italian championships. I’m also challenging, a tireless worker and a passionate in what I do.
I had a lot motivating work experiences but one of the most complete was the role of buyer at Garimarine, a modern shipyard in Massa Carrara, where I learned how to develop commercial perspicacity and where I cultivated my interest in technology, especially as regards use of composite materials such as prepreg carbon fibre.
Another interesting project was, with engineer Massimo Giovannelli, a project of a solar racing car for long distances. The project started with an aerodynamic shape optimized body to reduce friction. We analyzed and designed all the mechanical and electronic components. This experience, only on paper, was an invaluable opportunity to learn a method of design, find a solution to technical challenges in a different field of study, the automotive. The main objective was the reduction of consumption, and was an opportunity to understand how any "machine" is the result of a mix of technologies that must be able to connect with innovative solutions.
My work experiences have made me a problem solver and a solution finder while my candidature at the University of Cambridge for the academic years 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 helps me to look for excellence everytime.
