Hi, I am Ruggero, an interaction designer and creative technologist who works with code. I design and develop interactive objects, installations, websites, small applications.

I am interested in speculations and discussions on how digital and post-digital shape our everyday life. I am to be found at parcodiyellowstone, Milan.
