Aureliano Rivolta (Event Manager) 
Aureliano Rivolta holds a Msc in Space Engineering and a PhD in Aerospace Engineering from Politecnico di Milano. He deepened further his interest in the space sector at the Space Studies Program of the International Space University in 2018. His main fields of interest are On Orbit Servicing, GNC and orbital robotics. He is currently employed as ADCS and system engineer at D-Orbit. Aureliano has been involved in SGAC since 2012 and actively participating to the Space Safety and Sustainability working group, as a member first and as co-lead later, since 2015. Previously he was involved with the student association Skyward Experimental Rocketry were he was leading the flight dynamics team. At the same time he took part in space related outreach events and and has actively organized bigger events like SpaceUp Milan in 2016.

Davide Petrillo (Event Deputy Manager)
Davide has currently been appointed as the SGC 2019 Deputy Manager within SGAC. The Space Generation Congress will take place in Washington D.C., USA in conjunction with the 70th International Astronautical Congress (IAC). Davide has a M.Sc. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Padova, Italy. Previously, he was the Team Leader of FELDs Experiment selected by the European Space Agency (ESA) for the Drop Your Thesis! 2014 programme. FELDs tested a tethered electromagnetic soft docking technology in microgravity conditions at the Drop Tower of the Centre of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM) in Bremen, Germany. In 2015, he won the “Hans Von Muldau Team Award” for the best team project that took place in Jerusalem at the 66th International Astronautical Congress (IAC). Davide joined SGAC in 2016 and has been appointed as part of the 3rd E-SGW organizing team and also the SGC 2018 organizing team as part of the Working Group team specifically focused on the organization and management of the Special Track “Bridging the Space Divide” Working Group.

Laura Bettiol (Communications Manager)
Laura is currently working as Aerospace Engineering Researcher in the Electric Propulsion department of FOTEC in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. She concluded her academic career with a PhD in Space Sciences, Technologies and Measurements at the University of Padova, Italy in 2018. She previously studied Aerospace Engineering and attended the Space Studies Program of the International Space University in 2015. She worked at the ISU as Academic Assistant during summer 2018. She has been a member of SGAC since 2014, and is currently serving as National Point of Contact. She has been a member of the Space Safety and Sustainability Project Group for several years and is now leading the team that is working on the Space Safety Report.

Aloisia Russo (Delegate Coordinator)
Aloisia is a final year of MSc in Space Engineering student at the Polytechnic University of Milan. Her career is focused on re-entry subsystems, in fact, she was the head of the Recovery System Department in the Skyward Experimental Rocketry association from 2013 to 2017. After that experience in which she improved also management skills, she studied also techniques to have controlled reentry systems, like guided parachutes with high performances.Thanks to the association, she designed and realised a guided parawing which will be used in the next launch. 
She is also doing sensibilization campaigns to involve young people in STEM sectors, for this reason, she joined the Italian Core Team of Women in Aerospace. Due to her passion for the space field, she joined SGAC in 2017  and became the Local Point of Contact for Milan.

Francesco Ventre (Local Coordinator)
Francesco is currently studying for his MSc in Space Engineering at Polytechnic University of Milan. In 2018, he graduated in Aerospace Engineering from University “Federico II” of Naples with a thesis in Technologies of Aerospace Materials.  He is actually part of a team of five students working on sensorization of curved surfaces under the supervision of professor Michéle Lavagna from Polytechnic University of Milan. With the same team, he joined the “NASA Space Apps Challenge” held in Milan in October 2018. Moreover, together with others SGAC volunteers, he is organizing Space Talks events in Milan, called “Space Rendez-vous”. Since 2004 he is part of the Italian Catholic Scouts Association (AGESCI). Once he completed all the steps as learner, at the age of 21 he became a Scout chief. He educated for one year teenagers aged from 12 to 16, then he moved to the first branch of the educational path, educating children (age 8 – 12).

Antonio Scannapieco (Graphic Designer)
Antonio holds a PhD in Industrial Engineering awarded by University of Napoli, Italy. During his post-doc post at Cranfield Defence and Security as Research Fellow in Navigation and Guidance he was actively involved in H2020 I3DS project, delivering solutions for space relative navigation and handling technical management and small team management for Cranfield University, and in a project with DSTL. Antonio also joined for six months Fraunhofer FHR as Visiting Research Student during his PhD. Given his interest in the space sector, he joined SGAC in 2015 but only started recently to be more actively involved. He also had the chance to be rapporteur in Highly Integrated Distributed Systems session at IAC 2018. 
Previously, he was involved with local branch of Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) in Naples, for which he was Treasurer in 2013 and Secretary in 2014 as well as member of the Core Team for local round of EBEC Competition in 2013, Main Organizer of joint Motivational Weekend between BEST Naples and BEST Rome in 2013, and active member of PR team.
