After his humanistic studies, Vergani trained himself as a scholar while he worked in a record shop. A brief experience in the world of design led him to become Luigi Settembrini and Francesca Sorace’s assistant in the year 2000 during their collaboration with the Cosmit for the exhibition “1951-2001, Made in Italy?”. In 2001, he founded Nowhere, the first example of a nomad exhibition space, and organised exhibitions in Milan, Paris, and Florence with this format. In 2003, he opened a permanent office in Milan, thus giving substance to his research activity in the field of contemporary art. During the same year, and until 2006, he worked as an editorial consultant for Skira. From 2007 to 2013 he was the Vice President of Startmilano, a sectorial association for the diffusion of contemporary art and culture. He has been writing about art for the newspaper Il Giorno/QN since 2009.
