I have always been active in the academic field. I have been a visiting researcher at Harvard school, and a research scholar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Law School and Philosophy Department). My main research focus is legal design, but I am into legal innovation and innovability in their broader sense.

I am part of the editorial board of the UIA magazine The Juriste, and in the organizing group of the first Legal Design Journal. I am also part of the advisory board of the Italian Law Students Association and the Bologna University Law Review.


My horizons of interest are very wide, basically everything that is new, fresh, and dynamic in the legal world. In the last few years I researched/wrote/lectured about legal design, artificial intelligence, blockchain, entertainment, copyright, e-sports, B Corps and benefit corporations, sustainability, mental health, future of legal profession. Despite the variety of topics, my approach tends to be quite holistic


Since 2017, I am a Teaching Fellow for the CopyrightX course, offered by Harvard Law School in conjunction with the Berkman Center for Internet and Society. At Harvard, I held the course on Legal Design at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (J-Term) on 2023 and 2024.

I am also a lecturer for the masters of Sole24Ore Business School. I teach several modules, such as: blockchain and smart contracts; robotics, artificial intelligence and transformation, legal design.

During the last few years, I have been invited to talk in many universities. Among them, Harvard, Oxford (Deep Tech Dispute Resolution Lab), Swansea (Tech Lab), Kings’ College, University of Genova, Luiss, Bocconi, Pavia, Bologna, Padua, Milan (Universit√† degli Studi).

I have always considered innovation in its ethymological sense (the Latin words en and novare). Whether we talk about B Corps, legal design, alternative dispute resolution, or mindfulness, we need to look at things in a different way. And technology, while useful in most of the cases, is not necessarily a requirement.
