I am an assistant professor working at the intersection of Environmental Humanities, Italian, and Digital Humanities.
My developing project on noise utilizes 2D and 3D sound mapping and visual programming software MaxMSP, Ableton Live, and Unity3D with the goal of enabling users to interact with and remix sounds on digital geographical maps.
The purpose of this project is to create an interactive multisensory experience of the territory that involves hearing and touch in addition to sight.
My other work in the field of Eco-Digital Humanities is Navigli Project, a digital exhibit of Milan’s waterways that displays and narrates the visual, thick history of water in the city. It is an interactive resource for students, researchers, and the general public interested in discovering and learning about Milan’s disappeared canals and current plans to bring them back. It comprises several layers of history, politics, literature, architecture, sound, video, photography, and geography that show the different factors that throughout the centuries have shaped Milan’s cityscape of today.
