👋 Hi! My name’s Giovanni.
I’m a graduated Communication Designer at Politecnico di Milano, Italy.

Over the years, my love towards photography brought me to embrace more forms of visual communication, including videos and graphics. It just made sense to follow my passions and study Communication Design. While collecting various working and volunteering experiences, I’m continuing my studies with a Master’s Degree in Product Service System Design.
