“I have always been seduced by the atmosphere of a place, whether it was the living room of my home flooded with Mediterranean light or the severe courtyard of my elementary school.”

“I did my architectural studies in Milan, at the Polytechnic, fascinated by Giorgio Grassi's lectures. Here I met new ways to see the space and time of architecture, through the lenses of typology and morphology.”

“Thinking about architecture means studying it. Living space, living it, perceiving it. Picture the place, draw it, photograph it. In this way I entered the depths of architecture and photography. It is a continuous, unique process."
