Kia ora koutou.

Architect by trade. Self-taught photographer and graphic designer. Born under the sign of Virgo in Siena, a UNESCO architectural World Heritage Site.

I grew up in the middle of the Crete Senesi, the enigmatic countryside that surrounds Siena.

The bond existing between me, my work, nature, and architecture has always been so strong and clear that it determined a large part of the person I am today. All this is part of my culture, of my roots. The very essence of who I am.

After my Master at the University of Pisa, I spent 7 years as a self-employed architect in Italy. In 2014 I moved to Aotearoa New Zealand, working in other national and international firms. In 2018 I moved back to Italy, and with some colleagues I founded STUDIOY.

Politics is everywhere.
