His publication "Suoni Futuri Digitali" (2000), a survey on the history of technical innovations that have provoked major changes in our way of producing and perceiving sounds, had been enthusiastically accepted by the music scene.

He cooperates with the monthlies "Internet News" and "", with the RTSI (swiss radio and television broadcasting in italian language) and the online mag "". In 2001, he became member of "n.a.m.e."
