In late 2000 I was contacted by Rachel Bellinsky, vocalist of Switchyard, a band from Las Vegas. She proposed me to elaborate a Flash animation starting from one of their songs. Finally it’s done! The song is beautiful, you can download both Lo-Fi (732k) and Hi-Fi (4.5M) versions.
As visitor’s bandwidth broadens I’m constructing a video section. This is the first mpeg, maybe a little raw. Animation was generated with Lightwave, and it lasts 6 long seconds. An update is expected in the next weeks. (mpeg, 911k) No soundtrack.
This mpeg features the “camiciuzzu ‘e focu”, a folkloristic happening taking place in Calabria (southern Italy). Fireworks, scape goats and laughters! Courtesy of Carlo Serpieri.
In 1997 Architects Pimpini, Roccatelli & Valenti where appointed to design Piazza Piaggio in the roman outskirts. They asked me to develop the structures of three metallic kiosks underneath a sun shade. Finally the piazza has been completed, and its worth a visit. I used program SAP90 to calculate the structures.
In 1995 I was in team with N.Cazzato, F.Delfini & G.Gentile. That year we won a design competition concerning an exposition facility. The result was this metal grid block protecting a nucleus of translucent plastic. The pavillon was built by Delfini Group and raised at Bologna during the SAIE kermesse.
A movie of the construction, shot and edited by M.T.Laudando, L.Tovoli, S.Pierini & A.Trapani, also exists. I’ll try to show an excerp of it some day in the future.

Essays of virtual reality (originally produced Oct 1999). All models were rendered with LightWave 5.6. The WaterShade section features shaded Autocad 12 models (1997). Now also the Detail section, witnessing my research on realism in rendering. Special thanx to Gimmo & Dct. Faustus.
