About

I am a 26-years-old italian Architect and Engineer graduated with Honors at the Alma Mater Studiorum – University of Bologna under the supervision of Professor Riccardo Gulli. After the first professional experiences, starting in 2011 at Community Tectonics Architect in the United States, I moved part of my activity to Germany where I became a member of the board of Tinyhouse University in Berlin working aside with its founder Van Bo Le-Mentzel. I am taking part of the “Bauhaus Campus” exhibition at the Bauhaus-Archiv/Museum of Design participating with aVOID, a nine-sqm tiny house designed by me and built with the support of several leading Italian and German companies. I was awarded for the year 2017 with the “Berlin Prize” by Italian Ministry of Culture (MiBACT), Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAECI), Istituto Italiano di Cultura Berlino (IIC Berlin) and AEDED Berlin. Since October 2017 I have been working as an architect at GRAFT Architekten in Berlin. From April 2017 I will travel around Europe with my aVOID tiny house to promote a more sustainable and more simple way of living…on wheels!
