About my talks
 

My talks are mash-up events which include old and modern paintings, photos, cartoons, music, readings, video, found footage and film clips. What brings them together is the narration. Actually they are multimedia presentations, with a mix of knowledge sharing and entertainment. Topics span from tourism to new technologies, changes in the working world, biodiversity, body issues, future scenarios. All of which are constantly being updated. The location could be a theatre, an auditorium or an equipped room.

Bio
Anthropop style, my books and my photos

I am a cultural anthropologist. I teach Sociology and Anthropology of tourism at the Campus of Lucca (Pisa University). I am a  member of the International Scientific Council for Island Development (Paris) and of the Associazione Italiana per le Scienze Etnoantropologiche (Rome). Since 1992 I hold seminars and lectures, mostly outside the academic milieu.
As field research, I joined an expedition to India, directed by prof. Paul Bouissac from Toronto Victoria University (Canada) aimed to find out the sacred origins of traditional circus performances. After the tsunami (2004) I took part in a governmental project of community development in Sri Lanka. For ten years I worked on staff, as Anthropology editor, for the Italian geographical magazine "Airone". Then I started producing video documentaries (in Africa, Central and South America) which have been internationally distributed. Through these experiences, I traveled extensively to all continents.

Anthropop style

I’m particularly interested in bridging the gap between both physical and cultural anthropology, and  academy and  public at large. That's why I also give multimedia talks concerning different topics. My presentations are mash-up events which include old and modern paintings, photos, cartoons, music, readings, video, found footage and film clips.
