He received his design education at the Istituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche in Urbino. Cinti designs for companies such as Sambonet, Rosenthal and Pininfarina as well as for fashion brands such as Marithé + François Girbaud, Alberta Ferretti and many others. Before becoming self-employed as a designer and consultant with his own studio in Milan, he worked for five years as assistant to the Italian fashion designer Gianfranco Ferré.
He currently works as a design consultant for many international companies. As a cosmopolitan, a curious traveller, and someone who is passionate about contemporary art, he is a visiting lecturer at numerous universities all over the world and teaches design at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, the city in which he lives and works.
