Born in 1965 in Italy where I attended the German School of Milan. Graduated in physics at the university of Padua, and later obtained a Ph.D in physics at the university of Trento. I worked as a PostDoc researcher in universities in Italy, France and more recently in Germany, where I'm actually living. My pedagogical interests in new forms of individual learning and for a new Free Progress University concept originated both as a tutor in several universities, but especially because of my direct lived experience of what education should not be.
An idea worth spreading
Present academic systems are mainly based on a mechanical and dry learning that ignores the human creative and spiritual dimension. The stagnant state of modern science, research and education is perceived with increasing dissatisfaction. Learning, acquiring knowledge, and doing research is a process that must be guided from within. Contrary to present high school, college and university systems, that are focused on imposing a preordered knowledge by exams and grades, killing creativity and individual skills by uniformity, a Free Progress University fosters, passion, intuition, self-learning in diversity, and especially the complete freedom of expression and progress of the individual guided by an inner understanding. The current university paradigm, because it is in its intrinsic essence an authoritarian system. I argue that only through the abolition of exams, grades, and degrees, among several other things, that creativity, intuition as real forms of learning can return to flourish.
I'm passionate about
Founding a new education paradigm for college and university.
