He is the founder and president of Noema (noemalab.eu), a website devoted to culture-new technologies interrelations and influences (since 2000). Where “culture” also means “habits”, “lifestyles”, “communications”, “art”, “society”, “economy”, “media”, “sciences”, “philosophy”…, while “new technologies” should be intended in a broader meaning than the digital realm.

In 2004 he founded <mediaversi> (www.mediaversi.it), which he is the director of, a book series coproduced by Noema focused on new media, sciences and society, with an international Scientific Committee.

He has been working as a consultant in the field of new media (computer image, hypermedia, holography, telematics, and their applications) with public and private institutions and firms. Since 1992 he has been working on european projects on technological communications.

His theoretical activity is concerned with techniques and technologies of representation and communication in the communication and art realms, with the technoscience-based art forms and with the media archaeology studies. In the field of applied research he works on the opportunities of social relationships raised by online communications and new media.
