Aquaponic design


I am a student of Industrial Product Design, curious about the world and its reasons. I have always imagined aquaponics not only as a system of cultivation above ground, but above all as a possibility to create new ecosystems in the places where man lives and relates.
I am fascinated by craftsmanship, for more than a year I worked as a carpenter and now I try to combine technique with innovation, particularly in the design of aquaponic systems.
I always carry with me my notebook and camera, my inseparable travelling companions.

I am a graduate of Aquaculture, passionate about botany: that's why when I discovered the aquaponica I could not do without it.
I started from a DIY aquaponics plant and I never stopped, experimenting and learning how to improve every aspect of the system, from phytodepuration to ornamental and multitrophic fish farming.
A feature I love about aquaponics? To be able to cultivate in a healthy way both for myself and for the environment!

I am a graduate in Agricultural Science and Technology who has always been attentive to sustainable innovations in food production and distribution systems, capable of generating a positive impact on the environment and society.
I am fascinated by nature and in particular by the phenomena of virtuous and profitable cooperation between organisms, experiences from which I believe man must take an example.
I have experience in various sectors such as catering, agriculture and scientific research. I like to apply the theory of what I study to practice: from the cultivation of micro vegetables, to the use of natural fertilizers made at home.
I love to cook and share food with friends, trying to taste as much as possible new dishes.
