I graduated at the Polytechnic of Turin in 1995 with a Degree in Conservation of Contemporary Art
with a specialization in Light System and Design Implementation.

Right after graduating in 1995, I worked for two years at Studio Valle, a prestigious firm based in Turin. My main tasks were projects about restoration and consolidation of old buildings located in the center of our city.

From 1998 to 2000 I worked in an Italian lights producing company called ILTI Luce S.r.l. (now merged in Philips). My main tasks were projects about light design (mostly fiber optic and led).

In 2000 I start as independent architect, opening my firm (in Turin) with a main focus on restoration and lighting design.
At the same time I start a collaboration with the Polytechnic of Turin as Industrial Design Lecturer for all subjects related with Lighting Design.

Since the same year, I have been investigating new subjects, opening my job outlooks to new fields of the modern architecture, like projects of exhibitions’ venues (mostly under the lightning point of view) and advanced safety certifications of building areas.

As an extra reference, I am a Major of the Italian Army (NATO: OF3), and in March 2013 I ended the Functional Specialist CIMIC Course in Motta di Livenza (Italy). This status enables me to work as architect for all NATO’s projects around the world.
