Understood as an agent of change of the productive reality in a total way and as a catalyst of syncretistic reactions; the designer as an acting element inside the collective system of creation and not as an external protagonist of a process.

Of course, what I do is just a drop in the sea of problems, but I believe in small revolutions.
Is an acting element inside the collective system of creation, where we discover that, as the project advances, leaving aside the material part of the work, it is in the interactions that occur in the working groups and in the technical and linguistic "contaminations" that the most interesting evolutions develop, it is essential that outside consultants to the community become agents in the dynamics, creating at the same time new product typologies and new professional relationships among artisans.
