Raised in Treviso countryside, I remember sunsets and poppies, the smell of hay, a dog, a cat, stars and crickets, the runs on clods, the endless spaces. Music is initially a troubled balance between discipline and freedom. Today it is above all a silent form of respiration.
These are the years of classic high school, of the study of Latin and ancient Greek. The greatest discovery is comprehending that “classic” is not equivalent to antique, but, on the contrary, it qualifies a never old-fashioned thought because it is able to provoke every age.
I enroll in Psychology in Padua, where I meet students from all over Italy and Europe. Psychoanalysis, social psychology and sociology, which I discuss at bars with classmates until late in the evenings, get blended together.
The interest is increasingly focused on identity construction and the possibility of generating a real encounter with each other. The epistemological dimension becomes more and more crucial: how do we know what we believe we know?
I begin a long collaboration with the Pio X College of Treviso, by teaching philosophy and social science in high school and establishing the Service of Psychology and Pedagogy (SPP). It provides consulting, training and research services for the school community.
The role of SPP manager is associated with that of specializing in systemic-relational psychotherapy at the Eidos Center, branch of the Milan Family Therapy Center (CMTF). Psychoanalysis and social science find a new order in G. Bateson’s thinking, while the clinical work and the management of the SPP are intended as concrete examples of performing the ecology of the mind.
After the specialization in psychotherapy and the offer to become a lecturer of the CMTF, I stop to start a path of personal analysis, which today I consider fundamental. This is also the year in which I first discover the kindness, organization and nature of Sweden, which I love.
I begin the psychotherapeutic activity and the path to become a lecturer in Systems Thinking. I thus deepen Philosophy of biology, Medical anthropology and History of Family Therapy, which today I teach at the specialization school. At the same time, I work for Italian companies as a consultant and trainer.
I work as prof. Vincenzo Romania’s research assistant at the surgery department of the hospital in Montebelluna, National Center of Excellence for bariatric surgery. In the meantime, I start my first collaboration with Sweden, by organizing a seminar with Magelungen, a Swedish organization that operates according to Systems Thinking.
After having left the role of SPP manager, I win a PhD scholarship in Social Sciences at the University of Padua, by presenting a project about bariatric surgery patients’ families. Simultaneously I am also selected by Edward Lynx, a management consulting firm that operates internationally. I opt for the second avenue and move to Stockholm, where I currently live with my fiancée.
Today I mainly work as a management consultant, account manager and project manager for Edward Lynx. Lecturer in Systems Thinking, I also cooperate as a researcher for Cù Design, where I integrate psychology and architecture. Member of the editorial board Connessioni (CMTF), which investigates human systems, I write for La Chiave di Sophia, magazine endorsed by the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.
