Research Summary

Davide's research primarily examines interrelations among organizational identity, culture, and strategy in times of change. He has also investigated how designers work and how they contribute to strategic change and innovation in small business and large corporations. He is interested more generally in cultural-cognitive processes influencing how new objects and practices come to be, and whether and how they are valued and adopted by individuals and organizations. He is particularly interested in traditional and new forms of craftsmanship and craft production.

 

One of his latest studies examined how artefacts collected in corporate museums and archives enable organizations to use history, memory, and heritage as valuable resources for design and innovation. Based on this study, he curated an exhibition entitled Che Storie! Oggetti, miti e memorie dalle collezioni dei musei e degli archivi d‘impresa [tr. What stories! Objects, myths and memories from the collections of corporate museums and archives], Milano, April-May 2013.
