Chiara Rigotti

From 2002 to 2009 I was Coordinator of cooperation projects in Burkina Faso. With my associate study (2011-2012) I worked in Gabon and Morocco.

In the last 5 years I have been the sole manager of an architectural and construction firm called BIOARCHIRIGOTTI.

I have had a lot of work in Africa where the political situation has become unsustainable today. I'm used to solving problems in difficult situations, I like traveling even if I have daughters.

I built a € 1,000,000 cinema without site mechanization and won an award for an important research center built on the ground. I have always used only what I found on the spot in an advanced technical manner. I paid attention to natural energy, using natural ventilation techniques combined with sophisticated systems controlled by very simple software.

I used Odroid cards in rural areas with Android as software, training young illiterates with great success.
