My name is Matilde Patuelli, I'm very curious and I eat a lot. I miss traveling, I like humans, I love creatures, I’m fascinated by what feels new and different. I enjoy drawing, storytellers, magic, miniatures, games, and tomatoes.

I am a social designer and researcher.

My work explores reality perception, social constructs, and human interaction. Under the lens of care and well-being, I question the stigmas and misperceptions that surround our everyday life. In my projects often the research gets translated into educational tools through the use of diverse languages aiming to reinforce empathetic capacity and deconstruct misunderstandings.

At the present time, I am developing my design practice by looking at the fields of psychology and psychiatry and learning how to incorporate larp (live action role play) as a narrational and experiential tool for co-creation within this exploration.
