BIOGRAPHY

A chemical engineer, he is the father of the Eurosets oxygenators and his age is coupled with a lively, childlike spirit that is never tired of innovating and imagining the future of the biomedical industry.

Hired in 1985 by Mario Veronesi, the father of the district, to work at Dideco (and later Sorin-Snia, Pfizer and Cardionova), he joined Eurosets – an engineering newco set up ad-hoc and then integrated – in 2005 with one aim: to create a membrane oxygenator with the smallest possible area of contact with blood, the lowest priming and maximum biocompatibility: “We did it,” he says smiling.
