When I was a kid, like many other children, I dreamed of being an astronaut. During the high school years, though, I used to fix broken old stoves door-to-door to pay for my holidays, and maybe because of that at the university my interest turned to energy and its technologies, especially renewable energy and its innovative technologies, an interest that I would later develop throughout my career. During my professional career I was lucky enough to actively participate in numerous projects in the field of plant engineering such as the integrated interventions carried out for IKEA. In Corsico (Milan), for example, with the use of the largest closed loop geo-exchange system in Europe; in Parma and Rimini, where the "close loop" geo-exchange systems were supported with a vegetable oil cogeneration island to guarantee the use of all renewable energy, and in Turin-Collegno and Milan-San Giuliano, where high efficiency heat pumps were used to use both groundwater and surface stream water. Regarding the residential engineering field, I want to mention the intervention of "heating & cooling district" of Compartment Z2 in Rome, a complex of about 1,000 apartments. For this housing complex, an energy production from renewable resources was planned to cover about 70% of the overall annual energy needs of the entire housing complex, consisting of 20 multi-storey buildings. In the field of solar photovoltaic energy, I developed, along with my team, the guiding project for the insertion of systems on the roofs of all IKEA stores in Europe. In the field of monumental buildings and museums, I designed "open loop" geo-exchange systems with the use of extremely high efficiency heat pumps. Following these experiences and thanks to my know-how acquired over the years, I had the privilege of being called to be part of the design team for the development of the energy concept of 25 Medical Centre, as a Peer Review Engineer, plus for two interventions of residential construction in Toronto (1,000 apartments the first one, and 15,000 apartments the second one). In 2016 my work group developed the project of the various sections of the expansion of the Mega Shopping Center in Krasnodar (construction, demolition, reconstruction and renovation of an area of approximately 222,000 square meters). Thanks to my professional experience gained over the years and my technical knowledge, I carry out numerous consultations across Europe: Switzerland, UK, Ukraine, Romania, Serbia, Croatia, China, Russia, United Arab Emirates, etc. The know-how acquired in the field of renewability and sustainability has allowed me to be part of the Sustainability Workshops Group of the Ingka Group (IKEA) for several years, culminating in the workshop held in Burlington (Canada), in September 2018. What about today? I keep repairing old stoves that I collect at the STIMP headquarter and which represent a source of inspiration. The desire of being an astronaut? That has disappeared, but the desire to always look ahead hasn’t, as my will to always try to contextualize each project by looking at it as a whole. Just like an astronaut who looks at the Earth from space…
