I consider myself a result of various layers of multicultural influences: born in Rome in 1992, I lived for extended periods of time and received an education in Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
Determined since a young age to become an architect, I pursued my dream and achieved my master degree at the faculty of Architecture of the Technical University of Eindhoven in July 2016.
As I progressed in my academic career, I discovered a growing passion for the various dimensions of the architectural practice, I developed my visual fascination for design, I refined my abilities for critical and conceptual thought, I learned to master the tools that would help me express my designs and I repeatedly engaged in team work.
I believe that the combination of the historical legacy of my Italian background and the innovative tendencies of the Dutch culture provides me with the necessary tools to transform powerful concepts into innovative designs. The structure given by my cultural and educational background is completed by my own character: responsibility, seriousness, dedication and passion define me as a person.
