“The crisis consists precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born”
― Antonio Gramsci
The interest in complexity and innovation brought Damiano to take a multidisciplinary path of academic study and led him to fund projects in different fields.
After the bachelor’s in Biotechnology at the University of Bologna, a one-year scholarship allowed Damiano to attend a Master’s degree in Economics and Management in Spain.
The intersection of his work on platforms brought him to dive more into social theories, and he recently enrolled in a course under the Department of Sociology at the University of Naples.
