about

I graduated magna cum laude in November 2016 after 5 years of studying between Ferrara and Valparaiso. In Chile I developed my master thesis in landscape architecture, with a project of a new water infrastructure into the Atacama Desert. Over the past three years I did internships with both Italian and Chilean architectural firms, where

I worked on a variety of residential and urban planning projects for private clients and international competitions. With Tomas Ghisellini Architects we were selected as one of the 5 shortlisted projects in Europan 13 Ingolstadt. Now I'm working at Zus in Rotterdam.

My projects express my attitude of finding out solutions from different and complex contests. I am always interested in learning from fields which are not directly related to architecture, as I think they could have a lot of answers and solutions to offer. This portfolio show also my attitude about graphic design, which I think is essential to express and convey whatever idea.

master thesis

Aquastructura A different water infrastructure for the Atacama Desert Aquastructura analyses the impact of desalination process in the Atacama Desert, in northern Chile. Due to the increasing drought, in recent years many desalination plants were built to supply water to copper mining. Large underground aqueducts convey water from desalination plants near the sea to mine areas, as far as 190 kilometers from the coast and at even over 4000 m altitude. In this way a new inverse artificial hydrography was created, from the sea to the Andes mountain range. These new water infrastructures have a major impact on the landscape as Roman aqueducts do, but in a different way: while Roman aqueducts affect the landscape with their architectural presence, mining aqueducts, invisible because underground, modify the landscape bringing water to an environment where there is a shortage of this resource. Unlike Roman aqueducts, mines infrastructures go out of use

in a very short time as they serve copper mining and a mine usually lasts no more than 20 years. When a mine close all its infrastructures are left, creating a new landscape of gigantic industrial relicts in the desert. Aquastructura aims to recycle these infrastructures, using them in the fight against drought, as it is already happening successfully in Israel and Australia. The water plants examined are close to the Valley of CopiapĂł, the last large farming area in northern Chile. In recent years, drought and water use by mines endangered agriculture. A reuse of desalination plants could solve at least part of the water problems of this area, providing potable water for inhabitants and ensuring irrigation. The originality of the project lies in the simultaneous use of the desalination process and the water purification one, within a new water park usable for outdoor and sport activities which is designed following the water paths.

Chile does not have a long history of desalination projects, but this situation has changed recently. As a result of the extreme conditions of the Atacama Desert, the mining companies that own the biggest copper mines in the world were forced to find a new way to get water for their activities. That is why they have started building large desalination plants all along the coast of North Chile. Large underground aqueducts convey water from desalination plants near the sea to mine areas, as far as 190 kilometres from the coast and at even over 4000 m altitude. In this way a new inverse artificial hydrography was created, from the sea to the Andes mountain range. This system has grown quickly and nowadays it is longer and has a bigger flow rate than the natural hydrography of this region. The Atacama Desert is not an easy place to live in. Its colonization is a story of mining rushes that have been happening since the Spanish Conquest. That yearning for minerals caused the foundation of new cities and the creation of infrastructures that have allowed human settlement here. The history of the human presence in the Atacama Desert is about those infrastructures that were built into an untouched landscape and left there when they became useless: the legacy of the gold rush, the silver rush and finally the copper one is a landscape of giant obsolete relics.

Copiapò 27° 21’ S 70° 22’ W

The Copiapó Valley is the most northern cultivated valley in Chile, in the deep desert. Copiapó River flows in this area, allowing agriculture and the presence of Copiapó, one of the two big cities in the Atacama Desert that are not on the coastline. This valley is interesting because shows the relation between the natural hydrology of the river and the artificial one created over the last years by the desalination plants and their aqueducts. This area has been suffering a long period of drought, which affects agriculture and threatens water supply for the city of Copiapó. Solutions have to be found to solve this problem. A solution to water scarcity is already there in Copiapó Valley. According to the projects the mines which are operating now will be closed by the 2030s. At that moment desalination plants, built to provide them water, will become obsolete too. The strategy is to consider those industrial infrastructures as components of a larger ecosystem, where natural and man-made elements coexist. To solve drought problem obsolete water infrastructures are re-used to create a hybrid water system with the Copiapó river. The upper section of the valley will continue to use water from the river, while the lower areas will receive water from the desalination plants.

By 2036 two of the three desalination plants in this area will become useless because the mines to which they supplied water will close. That does not mean desalination plants will be obsolete: they could still continue working with a regular maintenance. This particular type of desalination plants operate with membranes that have to be replaced periodically every 6-7 years. Water that earlier was used for mining industry can now be allotted first of all to satisfy the water needs of the Copiapó city and other villages in the lowest section of the Copiapó Valley. This new water supply could also solve water problems related to tourism and contribute to improve it. For example Caldera and Bahia Inglesa are two of the main tourist attractions of the region and nowadays suffer water scarsity during high touristic season. The remaining quantity of water will be used to irrigate the V and the VI sector of Copiapó River which are the areas that receive less water because they are the farthest ones from Lautaro Basin and wells.

23 A peoplestructure Ingolstadt’s Rollercoaster merges panoramic german mountains and protecting city porches all in one! The architectural system is just like a mountain chain, simultaneously inhabitated under and above, in and out. We detected lots of vertical buildings in the historic urban core, some of them are above represented.

Ingolstadt 48°46’N 11°25’E

Ingolstadt really loves towers, the project raises an innovative trasparent spiral one just at the end of the ride! The time has come for a satellite-toshiny star metamorphosis, a firstly social and urban transformation able to reactivate the heart of the historical body. So here it is: a new organic network of fruitive occasions, activities, flows, uses and interchangeable social habits will work for the city to

the same purpose and through the same operation logic of a new highly connecting light infrastructure. This will not something for cars, motor vehicles or velocity shifts, but a new artificial landscape for people only; a totally reversible, modifiable and variously composable slow-action public space system. This will not be an infra-structure, but a nonstandard meeting, communication and social new square, a place for people, a peoplestructure!

The proposal aims to release public spaces from cars and give these areas back to citizens. In this neighborhood the majority of the flats have a private car park underneath. The project assembles that parking areas to save space for gardens and public spaces.

In a second stage, new connections are opened between the existing paths to overcome the dead-end roads structure.

The new public areas are called “district rooms”: public outdoor living rooms from inhabitans. They are marked by active walls with vertical gardens and forniture for outdoor activities.
