Here you can find some references about Francesco’s work, written by awesome professionals who worked with him around the world.


“Francesco impressed me in our short time working together. He is a seasoned leader that is very thoughtful in his approach to product design challenges and yet strategic enough to ask deep questions that show he’s thinking three or four moves ahead of everyone else.

Through his long-term vision he helped break apart potentially complex work into smaller more manageable tasks for the team to focus on.

I highly recommend Francesco for any design leadership role. It was a pleasure to work with him.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Francesco across a range of complex digital innovation projects in both Germany and the United States. Not only he constantly brought in a great deal of experience in managing and globally directing design strategy and user experience management efforts — he’s also been constantly showing a deep understanding on how those topics affect business strategy and growth, which is definitely an uncommon ability to be found among professionals in the tech industry.

In addition to that, Francesco’s neat organisation, teamwork, and communication skills proved to be outstanding, allowing us to very easily collaborate and deliver value from day one.

I am glad to have Francesco among my global network of trusted business partners, and it is with great pleasure that I recommend him to anyone seeking to transform and grow their business.”

“Francesco’s curiosity to learn new things sets him apart from his cohort. Apart from his exceptional collaborative abilities with diverse teams, deep focus, and knowledge of user experience, Francesco possesses a naturally analytical and strategic mental tool-set that has brought him success working all over the world.

In a relatively short time he was able to significantly impact complex projects and set a standard for project structure and long-term strategic vision for digital user experience. He embodies the perfect balance of creative and analytical thinking – drawing from his rich exposure to various fields including industrial design, architecture, history, art, and design – which makes his extremely effective at understanding and solving difficult challenges.

I am confident he would be an asset to any and every team he works with, and wish him success in all his endeavors.”
