Corrado Tamborra (Naples 1955) grew up professionally in a longstanding family tradition of turning of metals and production of prototypes and sculptures. His biography is characterized by great eclecticism in its products realized and excellence of customers, including Alvaro Siza, Riccardo Dalisi, Alessandro Mendini, Carlo Alfano, Luciano Fabro, Sergio Hats, Patrizia Ranzo and others. He realized numerous works for contemporary artists in Naples and in the world, as in the case of the project by Karim Rashid for Synopsis in the art Metro station of Piazza Borsa, which won (2011) the international prize “Emirates Leaf International Award” in London, as best station of the year. A long activity that turned its industrious workshop into a real point of reference for many of the most creative minds in Naples and in the world.

Michela Musto is an architect, researcher and designer. She worked for the top tier firms of the world of architecture, such as Foster+Partners, GFC, Pica Ciamarra Associates and many more. Her involvement with the world of architecture goes along with a deep interest for computational sciences and rapid prototyping tools. Her career as a fashion designer began after finishing her studies at the Architectural Association School of London, where she produced research projects over the relation between Fashion and morphogenetics. She realizes research projects oriented to address the profound relationship between fashion, digital fabrication and morphogenesis. She designed and realized several collections, presented during the Beijing Fashion Week in 2015 and the Maker Faire Rome, from 2013 to today. She held a great number of workshops on the possibilities expressed by emergent systems and generative design processes. She worked as a teacher in different countries as Iran, Romania, United Kingdom, Italy, France and United Arab Emirates. Her academic career is enhanced by publications (Cambridge Publishing, AD…), talks and lectures (La Sapienza, Emaar, IUAV, SUN, Federico II University Suor Orsola Benincasa…).

Sara Nappa

Sara Nappa, born in 1989, designer and maker, graduated in Naples in Industrial Design at the Faculty of Architecture Luigi Vanvitelli of the Second University of Naples – SUN and later in Design for Innovation at the Faculty of Engineering of the SUN. To broaden her background, he moved to Antwerp, Belgium, where she followed a training course at the faculty of design of Artesis Hogeshool, and works as a graphic designer & development for the association De Veerman. While in Belgium she had the opportunity to explore different design techniques, discovering digital manufacturing techniques and the FabLab world. Once she came back to Italy, she collaborated with firm People and Projects firm, realizing projects such as “Stand Barrisol” for the Architecture Exhibition in Rome 2012 and “The Narrative Room” for Spazio Italia – National Museum of China Beijing. After this experience she continues researching in the design domain, working at various design studios and realizing furnishings and fittings of exhibition spaces.

Gianmarco PADUANO
Gianmarco Paduano is an automation engineering student, winner of the national selection competition at the INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare), Section of Naples, where he worked on the electronic design and research for two years for a particle detector in collaboration with international institutions. From 2012 to 2013, he was coordinator for human resources of the student association BEST (Board of European Students of Technology). Promoter of training events in management and technology in Spain, France, Greece, Czech Republic, Poland and Russia, promoter and tutor of engineering and architecture competitions, acquires technical and business skills in a European wide context. Particularly relevant is the participation in the organization of the final stage of the European engineering competition, held in Warsaw in 2013 where he was responsible for the themes focused on mechanics and robotics for space exploration. Last but not least, it’s worth mentioning the industrial prototyping activities realized in St. Petersburg and at the Warsaw Polytechnic FabLab.
