Bologna, IT



I'm an architect active in planning, design and art.


I think that architecture is the more complex art form because of their duty to answer to practical needs and its task to show the contemporary culture, for these reason it's relation to the idea that generates it must be strong during the whole design process, from the first sketch to the details design.


I had worked in big architecture firms, as well as free-lance and stand alone architect with success in team member as well as team leader.


Now I'm looking for a chance to work out of Italy to compare myselves with a culture different from mine, and to better understand the contemporary feauters, something that is founadmental for a personal and professional growing.
