Emanuele Dal Carlo is an entrepreneur and a social activist in Venice. With more than 30 years of experience in marketing and design, he has often put his skills in the service of public causes and social activities. Along with friends and colleagues, he has spearheaded various grass-roots initiatives in Venice. More recently, he has launched a think tank called RESET Venezia that in summer 2015 has lifted the lid on the growing phenomenon of short-term rentals in Venice. Following that research, Emanuele Dal Carlo and his colleagues have launched, developing the basic business model that later — after joining forces with the homonymous group in Amsterdam– became the core of the project. Emanuele Dal Carlo’s main company DNA Italia is also the first funder (sovventore) of Fair Bnb Network Società Cooperativa, the co-op structure behind project. He is currently President of Fair Bnb Network Società Cooperativa.
