The Last Supper Website

https://cenacolovinciano.org/
I developed the official website of Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper in Milan.

Brera Museum Website

http://pinacotecabrera.org
Pinacoteca di Brera is the most prominent art museums in Milan and one of the major ones in Italy. Their website is considered one of the best sites for an Italian museum.

I developed the entire website using WordPress as a CMS. The site contains an archive of more than 600 pieces of artwork, and the user can filter the archive by period, style, author, material, and technique.

All the artwork comes with a high-resolution image on the site. On the artwork page, I integrated a JavaScript library (OpenSeadragon), allowing the user to magnify the image up by 300%. Inside this zoom viewer, I added a JavaScript function to recognize the human faces in the paintings and center the image properly. The website also comes with an events section and an online booking system.

The entire website is bilingual (Italian and English).

Gallerie Barberini Corsini

http://www.barberinicorsini.org/
Gallerie Barberini Corsini is a major art museum in Rome and one of the major ones in Italy. I developed all of the website using WordPress as a CMS. The website comes with an archive of some of the best artwork, news, events, and newsletters.

Pride Group Website

https://pridegroup.us/
Pride Group is one of the biggest event companies in Arizona. The company also provides other services like vehicle outfitting and creative designs.

I developed and designed the new company website. The website comes with a reserved area for the employees to submit internal requests such as maintenance, graphic requests, and post-event reports.

Pride Outfitting

https://prideoutfitting.com/
Pride Outfitting is a Pride Group company that specializes in vehicle outfitting for law enforcement, fire, and utility companies. I developed and designed all of the website and it has a reserved area with an archive containing all the vehicles outfitted by the company. The technician can add on to the front-end of the website new vehicle builds and edit the existing ones. The archive comes with search and filters by vehicle category, year, make, and model. I also built the 3D CGI video for the homepage.

Parking JuJu

https://parkingjuju.com/
Parking JuJu is a website for pre-selling tickets for the University of Phoenix Stadium. The website was developed using WordPress and WooCommerce. I also made a plugin to add all the functions needed to use WooCommerce as an event-ticket selling solution. Every generated ticket comes with a unique QR code generated by the website.

I built a custom API which allows an iOS app to connect to the website's database. A user can check then if the ticket is valid and execute the check-in. I also developed the iOS app to read the QR code and, using the API, retrieve the ticket from the database to check if it is valid or already checked in.
