During the academic years he dedicated himself to the study of the language of images and their influence on contemporary society, with particular attention to technologies and how to spread and use them; research that will flow into the drafting of the thesis “The society of automatism”, partly available on the site of the Scuola Fuorinorma (the collective canecapovolto), with which he regularly collaborates from 2015 with workshops and cultural events. In 2014 he collaborated on the restoration of the work “Tavoli” (1995) by the collective Studio Azzurro in Paternò during the Festival dell’Archivio e del Patrimonio.
