Francesco received his architecture degree from the Politecnico di Milano and Escuela Tecnica Superior de Arquitectura in Barcelona. After an experience working in Paris at the Studio of Mario Cucinella Architects and in Bologna at Studio Losa Ghini, Francesco established BBStudio Architecture and Design in 2001 in Reggio Emilia. Francesco’s professional and personal interests in the areas of smart cities and smart communities led him to combine production and social innovation to establish FabLab in Reggio Emilia in 2012, supported by Reggio Emilia Innovation, inside Spazio Gerra.
FabLab is a small scale laboratory space that uses a series of open source computer-controlled machines for new forms of creativity for industry and artistry. Francesco also teaches industrial design within the Department of Mechatronics Engineering and Management at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.
