BIOGRAPHY

Italian Architect (1986). Since his childhod he has experimented with the artisanal approach to work in the family ceramics workshop and in his father’s carpentry one. There he discovers and develops sensibilities connected to the practical art of know-how as an essential skill to realize small projects and sculptures and learns with attention to recognize the characteristics of different materials and their adaptability. In 2014 he graduates in Architecture with a thesis on old towns and abandoned cities, while simultaneously cultivating his passion for theatrical scenography, with a particular interest in the relationship between the image and the scenic backdrop. From 2014 he participates actively in National and International Architecture Competitions receiving awards and recognitions and experimenting, on several occasions, theories about the city and the community of people. In 2016 he is awarded the NIB PRIZE (Italian top 10 young talents in architecture) and his work is exhibited in Italy, Spain, Denmark, Portugal, England, France, Sweden and Norway. In 2017 he wins Europan14-Norway in Alta with the project “Tanca” and the “MIUR Scuole innovative” competition on the site of Matera, in Italy. He has been collaborating as a Coordinator Architect with the Vazquez Consuegra Studio (Seville, Spain) and currently lives and works in Lausanne (Switzerland). He believes in autobiography as the only possible profession.
