Born in 1974 in Milan, where I was one of the first young people to train in the Degree Program in Industrial Design of the Polytechnic, where I took a degree in 1999 and continued to work as a researcher on the design of LED lighting fixtures.
I completed my thesis in California at the Powerlight Corporation in Berkeley, a company directly supported by the Californian Goverment with important customers such as NASA and IKEA, where I continued to work as a designer.
After returning to Italy, I worked at iGuzzini as a lighting designer and product designer, specializing in the world of fashion retail and custom products.
After other professional experiences with some of the most important Italian lighting companies, in 2004 I founded Liteq Design studio together with Giorgo Brambilla, a lighting and product design company specialized in the production of limited editions of special lamps, with a primary focus on the world of fashion.
In these years our busines has grown up with the acquisition of important customers such as Gucci, Fendi, Moncler, Tom ford, etc.
In parallel to the intense efforts required for the growth of Liteq Design, I began a series of important collaborations on an academic and institutional level that led to involvement as a speaker and organizer of events in Italy and the world, including – for three consecutive years – Light + Building Moscow: Interlight, and many conferences promoted by Italian and international organizations.
Starting in 2011, I have been a teacher and thesis advisor in Lighting Design at the Department of Interior Design of IED, the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan.
I wrote many articles for Italian and foreign magazines specializing in the world of lighting, including LEDin, LED professional, Luce e Design, Professional Lighting Design and Retail Tech.
In 2009 Liteq Design acquired BILUMEN and a new adventure began by managing a whole Lighting company one hundred years old and not only our original Lighting consultancy company.
We are still expanding our business by creating new concepts and products for Dolce e Gabbana, Starbucks, Lavazza, Furla, Pomellato, Devi Kroell, OVS, Furla, Pinko, Orovivo, etc.
A former musician, I was part of a well-known darkwave band from 1994 to 2005, with a large following on the Milan underground scene.
Beyond the world of work, I enjoy vintage cars and motorcycles, personally restoring and driving the vehicles I loved best in my youth.
