01 About me: “The passion for landscape architecture arose in me after a trip to Japan. The beautiful and harmonious rock gardens that abound in Kyoto, artistic and cultural heart of the country, are the ultimate expression of the garden art; In these gardens all plants and minerals represent the true essence of life. Here the landscape architecture finds its highest representation becoming an artistic expression, like a painter who paints his canvas.


So begins my journey into the world of landscape architecture, with the desire to design spaces that accompany us in our daily lives. The same attention to detail I found some years later going to visit the studio of one of the greatest masters of the Italian Landscape Architect, Pietro Porcinai. In his works we find his view of the garden; The use of materials, plant species and their combination is always harmonious. His passion for nature and the search for a balance between built and unbuilt is inspiration and incentive for my professional growth.” Education: 2018

Project Experiences: 2017 Participation to the public design competition for the expansion and upgrading of primary school La Favorita in Corbetta, Milan. - in collaboration with Architects Sabine Di Silvio and Fabio Giantini. I worked with the team Studio Quadrato Architecture for design competition regarding the extension of primary school “La Favorita”, its relevant spaces and new public spaces. The landscape project for the school areas, was born from the idea of creating multifunctional spaces containing interesting items for the growth and learning of children. Make the school as a new Civic Center of city of Corbetta. Even the design of new public recreation areas have been a really challenge for me: it was necessary to think about the needs of children along with those of the population planning a new pedestrian connection from the old town to the City Park.
