Attended a 5-year masters' level course on architectural engineering in Pavia, Italy. Università di Pavia, Dipartimento di Ingegneria Edile e del Territorio. My thesis work aimed at merging bioarchitecture and restoration; it consisted in the realization of a tourist hotel / traditional restaurant by restructuring an abandoned rural dwelling in Puglia, Italy. Environmentally-friendly technologies were applied to make the project energetically sustainable. In this work I conducted a historical study on the

traditional rural constructions in the surroundings, studied solutions for the restructuring of the existing structure, and planned new ones. I also conducted structural analysis on some of these structures.
