I am a Chartered Italian Architect who studied at Politecnico University of Milan, I hold a Bachelor of Architecture in 2008 and a Master of Architecture in 2011.

During my five-year architectural studies I developed a social and historical approach to the city, understanding how its relationship with human development renders places and community inseparable. Following this conviction, I took part in the 2008 Edition of the International Award for Architecture, Archaeology and Museography “Giambattista Piranesi” at the Hadrian Academy in Rome. Thanks to the final success in the competition I was offered a scholarship by the Hadrian Academy for the 2010-11 Master Degree Program in “Architecture, Archeology and Museum Design – Innovative Design and Management of Archaeological Heritage” in Rome. I attended this one-year program while at the same time completing my study in the Graduate School of Architecture in Politecnico University of Milan.

Upon graduating from Politecnico in March 2011, I immediately started working part-time in two Architectural practices in Milan, one of these being focused on sustainable architecture and Italian energetic certifications and the other on structural engineering. In order to become Chartered Italian Architect, during this period I was also studying for the Italian Architecture State Examination, which I successfully passed in February 2012.

I currently live and work in Sydney as a Graduated Architect.
