Davide Leone

Biography

Davide Leone is an architect and a Ph.D. in Urban and Regional planning. He was a Research Fellow at the University of Palermo and in the University of Roma 3. His main research interests are directed to social issues of the city with particular reference to the multi-ethnic dimension and to the city representation tools that are intended as communication protocols for non-traditional urban planning processes. Nowadays he works with CLAC association, struggling to improve the cultural framework of Palermo. This collaboration has been consolidated in many years and gave the opportunity to explore a new and interactive mode of narration of the region through the collection and geolocation of memories. This method has been tested within the project “Mare Memoria Viva”. The new projects in which Davide Leone is involved are U’Game, a gamification project about the intersections between the cities and the need for people to play and Zisa CreZi_Plus, a creativity booster to test new paradigm of the creative city. Particularly this last project, made in collaboration between CLAC and ARCA consortium, modifies the idea of business incubators, opening them to the city to realize a strength and durable connection between places, people, and entrepreneurs.
