Eduscopio: A School Ranking Platform
Eduscopio is the main Italian platform for the ranking of high schools. The project started in 2014, and now I am working on its sixth release. I oversaw the complete development of the web application since its concept, guaranteeing the service's usability even in moments of extreme stress. I discussed UX and UI expectations with Fondazione Agnelli, the customer.

From the back-end point of view, I used two DBMS and MySQL to read the website's structured information and MongoDB to write in real-time through WebSockets user statistics and usage logs. I used Hapi.js as a server framework with a REST API design. I integrated Twitter SDK to show the latest tweets from Fondazione Agnelli on the homepage, a simple CMS to create an internal blog section, and a PDF generator.

For the front end, I used a custom React single-page application. I developed two different versions, one optimized for mobile and the other for desktop. I also developed an animation system to create a helpful and friendly user journey. I integrated Google Maps API, geolocation, a WebSocket system to track user interactions, chart animations, dynamic list sorting, and a custom product tour system as a tutorial.

Pangea Professional SaaS
Pangea Professional is a cloud system to archive, visualize, analyze, and share your project with clients and collaborators. It provides direct access to your site's digital twin, integrating all the necessary forms used in the design and implementation phases of modernization, maintenance, restoration, construction/demolition, and monitoring.

Thanks to this SaaS platform, professionals could buy subscriptions to use Pangea Cloud software directly in their web browsers.


Ripit is a web application launched by Fondazione Agnelli that helps students improve their English accents (British and American). It is based on the Sana Voice engine. I developed both the front- and back-end sides using Node.js and React. I deployed the app to AWS and integrated it with AWS Cognito, S3, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, and Polly, among other AWS services.

QuARcore eCommerce Solution

QuARcore is an eCommerce solution created to enhance websites with AR.
The platform includes an institutional website, an AWS SasS platform, and a React Native mobile app.

I developed and deployed a large portion of the project and managed a team of four.

Welfare Informa Platform

Welfare Informa is a platform created following the "Oltre la povertà" project organized by ActionAid, with the contribution of the Ministry of Labor, in collaboration with the Regione Piemonte and leader, Acli Piemonte.

The platform's goal was to build a dynamic catalog of measures to combat poverty based on a database that helps operators in all front offices easily understand and access the map of different services. I followed the entire flow of the platform by managing a team of four people, from the UX and UI analysis to the development of the back-end logic, front-end interfaces, and deployment on AWS systems.

Adhesion App

The Adhesion app is a mobile application built in React Native for iOS and Android for retaining business customers. Each merchant has a unique QR code that their customers can frame with the app and be associated with it. The app allows users to see the list of all active promotions of their associated merchants and receive push notifications about the promotions themselves.

I am the co-founder and lead developer of this app. I oversaw the development of the REST API server and the mobile app in React Native.

Spazio alla Scuola

Spazio alla Scuola is a tool designed to help schools prepare for the resumption of educational activities in September after the emergency due to COVID-19.

Conceived by the Agnelli Foundation with the BIM Group of the Politecnico di Milano and the University of Turin, the tool provides school managers and their collaborators' concrete support to check the school spaces' capacity and plan staggered flows of classes at the entrance and exit.

Claranominis is a full-service suite for the reputation management of VIPs, brands, and companies.

I worked both on the front- and back-end sides, combining AWS serverless with React SPA capabilities.

A progressive web app (PWA) developed with Node.js and React on AWS cloud. I took care of all the back-end development and DevOps settings for both front- and back-end services. I co-developed the React PWA by providing web push notifications, Stripe payment gateway, and ConvertKit integration.

Maptive – Version 5
Maptive is a SaaS created by a USA company that offers a map maker for any nonprofit or business operating in sales, retail, supply chain management. The platform is single-page application SaaS.

I brought in new features for version 5 and managed the development process with three other lead and junior developers. I assigned them tasks on the Asana PM tool, reviewed their code, and participated in weekly meetings with the founders and the other lead developers.

Beautylish Launch Club
One of my best works with React Native is Beautylish Launch Club, which I developed as a solo developer starting from a project on Figma. The application is an eCommerce showcase of products in a special launch by Beautylish Inc. It uses Redux, Material Design, BrainTree as a payment system, and Ajax to communicate with the Python server.

Beautylish is a worldwide eCommerce of cosmetics products. I built several parts of the application and managed the microservices front-end architecture. I developed the product page ( and the review page ( with React and MUI (Material UI).

Sublime Security
Sublime Security is a SaaS that helps large US organizations secure their employees' email accounts. An efficient filtering algorithm ensures all incoming emails are secured and flagged in advance if potentially dangerous. My contribution to the project was on the front-end side in React, for which I rebuilt the entire email viewing and filtering section from scratch.

Excelsiorienta is a Unioncamere platform to help students choose a professional future aligned with their talents and passions. Unioncamere is an Italian public body established in 2016 within the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Crafts, and Agriculture.

The platform was developed entirely with Next.js. It takes advantage of almost all rendering technologies, from SSR for search pages via query parameters and news to SSG for static pages such as the about page, the cookies and privacy page, and two special sections rendered on the client side: one for the CMS admin side and one for the internal orientation game called OrientaGame. These two sections are two SPAs within the project in Next.

In 2022, was released in the Italian market. This platform is my latest and most successful project with Next.js, as it includes:

1. A server-side rendering system based on an internal CMS engine built with MUI, React Router, Redux, and Redux-Saga.
2. Pages that are fully rendered and used as single-page applications (SPA) that compose the admin CMS panel.
3. End-to-end services to retrieve Coop's customers and physical shops' locations.

The project uses MongoDB as a DBMS, several endpoints and models for reading data, and some scripts that convert data from some CSV files into Mongo collections, as well as a complete CMS to build almost all front-end pages. It was deployed on AWS with Amplify Hosting and uses S3 buckets for assets, CloudFront as CDN, and Route53 for DNS and domain management.
