Q: We are with Stefano Plumeri, one of the Archimede 1.0 Solar Car team members. What is your role in the project?
A: I took care of vehicle dynamics and specifically I realized part of the rear suspension and the whole assembly of the car together with my coworkers.
Q: When and why did you start to participate in this project?
A: I started about a year ago, after be acquainted with Archimede from the stories of some colleagues of the University of Catania who were planning their car and had come from Futuro Solare to learn from Archimede design. I was fascinated by this project and because I’m from Siracusa I decided to start working next to all the people that are now like a second family.
Q: A value of this project that you care and that you think is particularly important to convey.
A: I think that the oil age will not end because oil will be over, as well as the Stone Age did not end because the stones are over. I think we are at the beginning of a new era: sustainable mobility, economic and clean is the new target that each of us, in one’s own small way, should carry on. I think we can and must find an alternative solution.
