MARCELLO CAPUCCI

Responsabile Servizio Qualità Urbana e Politiche Abitative Direzione Generale Cura del Territorio e dell’Ambiente
Master in Public Management and Innovation II

"My work in the fields of urban and social regeneration is always oriented towards listening to and understanding phenomena and innovating processes. My technical training has supported me for a long time, but the dynamics are increasingly complex and articulated, and it is necessary to explore solutions and ideas even through disciplines and territories that are not my own. Also, everyday work imposes knowledge and skills that you often learn by doing, but which soon require a more organic systematisation so as not to become chaotic. This is what the Master's course was all about: an opportunity to go deeper and "tidy up", feeling better equipped to do one's job, also thanks to the possibility of getting to know the qualities and skills of one's fellow students."
