Marco Spinelli / Italy

Designer and Lecturer
member of gli additivi/ Lecce

Gli Additivi. We are Andrea Aufieri (journalist), Margherita MacrĎ (editor) and Marco Spinelli (graphic designer). We promote the open data culture. We share a passion for the stories, according to our skills and through the path followed so far: the data, the story, the design. Each of us was an additive for others and together we try to improve the field that we chose by simplyfing most complex things. We were born in 2014 in Italy to discover the consequences of hybridizing our passions. The first step has to do with the Socratic: Visualize, the first laboratory from below, based on data culture. For us, this is an innovative way to help social actors to think about themselves and their interactions. Additives as we facilitate and improve the quality of these processes.
