I am a creative and enthusiast professional, with many years of experience in projects of many types and scales. During my career, I have developed my skills specifically towards the design and realization of private residential spaces: homes are our protective nests and as they epitomize the place where one can find him/herself fully at ease, so I have always believed they deserve a high degree of attention from architects. I have also worked and researched on the topic of regeneration of cities and urban environments, within this field my PhD thesis dealt with how to improve peripheral urban areas through design interventions on infrastructural voids.
In the last two years I have collaborated as an architect with NGOs in Ghana and Somalia: research and design practices in these countries have made me faced a completely new reality from the one I was accustomed to in Europe and enriched a lot my professional and personal background. I am co-founder of At hand Program, both an association and an educational programme working in developing countries: the aim is to deliver low-cost buildings made with traditional techniques and local resources to NGOs and more in general to local people through on site cross cultural workshops open to university students.
