In this page you can find some of the projects I love the most. As you can see there's plenty of work stuff,
but I always find some spare time for having fun, learn new things and make foolish experiments.
MTV Italy's official website
MTV.it is one of the most important entertainment websites in Italy and it's the project on which I spend the most of my office hours from monday to friday. As web project manager and UX specialist, I am the bridge between product requirments, technical team and editorial people, dealing with the online presence of MTV's main shows, cross-media initiatives and events.
MTV Italy's VOD platform
During my career at MTV, this is maybe the most relevant product I've had the chance to follow since its beginning and is now one of the most successful websites launched in MTV Europe in the last years. My contribution here started with the initial UX design, IA and requirements definition, getting through staff coordination during the development process. It still goes on with the periodical analysis of KPIs and the neverending release of new features.
MTV Italy's music charts section
MTV Classifiche is a key section of MTV.it and set a new reference point for online music charts in Italy, becoming in a very short time one of the top product of our digital network. Like for MTV On Demand, I followed this project's UX design process, content management and technical implementation. The section is focused on SEO-driven traffic and is always evolving with new releases.
Filmmaker & Director
I made the personal website and portfolio of Beppe Tufarulo, director, filmmaker and photographer, author of award-winning short-films, documentaries, commercials and music videos. We chose a very simple and clean layout focused on a grid of its main projects. The power of WordPress allows an easy and versatile content management.
Diritto Civile a Milano
Marta Villa is a young lawyer based in Milan and she was looking for a small website to launch her business, showing her skills and activities. I've been involved in any part of the project, from the graphic layout to copywriting and technical development. I opted for a clean, one-page layout focused on a black & white picture and good typography.
From Eternity To Here
Giorno Per Giorno is an important Italian festival about contemporary culture which takes place in Turin every year. I made the bi-language official website of the initiative in collaboration with Pomo Graphic Design Studio, which took care of design and art direction. The main features of this project are a wide usage of CSS3 and @font-face rules to obtain the desired typographic output, while the home page is dominated by a jQuery animation of random-glittering rectangles.
From Eternity To Here on mobile devices
I made the mobile version of this website with two goals in my mind: (1) be quick, because the event promotion was going to start; (2) do not create a traditional, static "m-site", but try to offer a richer experience, similar to the one you have with the best mobile apps on the market. It's not a difficult task if you keep your design clean and know how to put jQuery Mobile under the hood, taking care of touchable elements, page transitions and device compatibility. Simple, but effective.
The art of branding emotions
Trident Entertainment's business is to create cool brand events, sponsorships and branded content for very important clients all over the world. Their website is developed on WordPress with a fully customized theme designed by Bonellicio.us, built-in bi-language support (Italian and English) and a smart, flexible content management architecture to fit their needs without any headache.
Art direction and graphic design studio
I created this WordPress-powered website starting from the mockup provided by the client, a graphic studio specialized in high-quality paper design. Its best feature are a pixel-perfect layout and a perfect integration with WordPress 3, making content management very easy despite a slightly complex structure, with the main portfolio section flanked by a blog ("Magazzini Pomo") behaving differently from the rest.
Outsourcing, mailroom, archiving and facility management
This is another website I recently made using WordPress as a powerful CMS. The target was to create a modern corporate website, with a home page that offers a quick overlook on the company's strenghts and philosophy, leaving to internal sections and pages all the details about services, references and contacts.
An inspiration point for cycling enthusiasts
Tumblr is such a fantastic tool. I'm using it as a quick and easy CMS for this showcase of cool bicycles I've recently made. I customized the theme with some CSS3 effects, a "search by brand" form with autocomplete and a color filter tool. I'm having fun with this simple but powerful little thing.
Prosopopea della Bicicletta
And here's another experiment on Tumblr. I had felt the need of this new space on the web since I discovered that a small photocamera fits perfectly in the backpocket of my cycling uniform... Just add a nice vintage touch to the pictures and you can turn any bicycle ride into a heroic endeavor worthy of Fausto Coppi or Gino Bartali.
The sport blog that brightens my Mondays
This is about one of my greatest passions. I love football, but I found myself better as a narrator than as a player... So I let my friends fighting in the field while I wrote their heroics on this Blogger-powered website. I started this blog for fun in 2006 and now I just can't get enough, while it's getting more and more popular between the insiders.
The citation visualizer for WordPress
I like strong typography. I like WordPress. I like inspiring quotes from inspiring people. That's the spirit behind CoolvetiQuotes, a very simple WordPress theme with which you can quicky publish your favorite quotes and give them a custom background to obtain the perfect mood you want, creating a colorful stream of words.

Kusarigama is a WordPress theme with a focus on flexibility and customization, with clean layout and a wide usage of CSS3, its full support to some of the latest WordPress features Kusarigama is perfect both for the newbie blogger and for the WordPress ninja. Kusarigama is available for free download, as my personal gift to the amazing WordPress community.
