Full-time basic research at the Department of Industrial Chemistry at the Milan Polytechnic, directed by Giulio Natta.
After three years of basic research in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, in early 1954 began research in the field of stereospecific polymerization, which resulted in filing some revolutionary patents.
Was included, along with Giulio Natta, in practically all the patents (particularly those filed in 1954, 1955, and 1956) regarding new polymeric materials, including isotactic polypropylene (marketed in Italy under the name MOPLEN). Was also one of the inventors of ethylene-propylene rubbers (marketed in Italy under the name DUTRAL).
In 1963, Giulio Natta was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his research in the field of stereospecific polymerization.
Published many papers works in a variety of scientific journals, and presented conferences at many international meetings.
