I am interested in local development, innovation and regeneration of competence networks in SMEs production systems: these are my fields of teaching and research (both in theory and applied research). A complementary field is enhancing an active knowldge of the local context (economy and society) in a global perspective: this is the action research programm of OFFICINA EMILIA, by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia (, offering hands-on laboratories on history, technology and science to improve the quality of the education system. Whithin this program, together with Crafts Museum (New Delhi) we have developed a software "homm-sw" to value tangible and intangible heritage. rnwep page
