Who we are
What we've done
A life in Greenpeace. Teenager activist around Europe, he approached the web as junior international new media campaigner in Amsterdam, then head of the new media unit for Greenpeace Mediterranean in Istanbul. After two years as Climate and Nuclear campaigner in Greenpeace Italy, now is the Campaigns Director of Change.org Italia and cofounder of Latte Creative.
Main focus of Salvatore's work is to transform internet users into online activists. He witnessed the social media boom, involving himself from the very early phase.
When he joined the international office, Greenpeace didn't have a Youtube account or Facebook strategy. Today, online communities are considered by the NGO as a priority target for all engaging and fundraising activities.
His most successful campaigns include "Green my Apple", which eventually convinced Apple to rise the environmental standards of their hardware products and "I Lovve nuclear", a petition campaign to stop the national nuclear program in Turkey which reached 180.000 signatures. His recent work addressed the development of the fund raising strategy for the Middle East and an in depth work within mass mailing campaigning.
Master graduate in nuclear physic at Bologna University.
A cinematic brain born to produce some of the top rated videos you can find on the Internet. Smart, funny and effective: Daniel's work is acknowledged and requested worldwide and spreads like a virus.

He left the cutting rooms of the British film industry in his early twenties for Prague to seek the surrealist film-maker Jan Svankmajer.

Over the next decade in Prague he worked as editor and animator on commercial and personal film projects, as well as becoming head of post-production of a TV production company. In 2008 he spent a year working for Greenpeace International in Amsterdam, creating short films for Internet release.
