Born in Venice, I am an architect and landscape designer.
As a third-generation architect in my family, I trained at my parents' practice, SYNERGIA progetti, from my academic years. There, I actively collaborated as a designer and researcher for over 15 years.
Reading the history of architecture from its geography, learning and using a systemic approach and researching design methods are tools I gleaned from Sergio Los and Natasha F. Pulitzer, experts in bioclimatic design for the past 40 years. Through them, I also inherited the legacy of my grandfather Gustavo F. Pulitzer and Carlo Scarpa, of whom my father was first a pupil, then a collaborator and scholar for a long time.
Varie le collaborazioni: nel 1985-86, alla Triennale di Milano (mostra "Le città Immaginate"), brevi periodi a Londra (1985 Arch. Ralph Lebens, 1990 Greenberg & Hawkes) e successivamente a Parigi (1998-99) e in Costa Smeralda (2017-2019) con Stefania Stera (Stera Architectures).
I founded SOL in 2003, teaming up with other professionals in tackling our projects and working as an external consultant to craft businesses, among the excellences in made in Italy productions, such as Laboratorio Morseletto, Giambenini, Morelato.
Alongside architectural design, I curate numerous initiatives around the culture of living in the form of events, theatre plays, inclusive (Designforall) communication. In this context, I helped coordinate the BENÈ expo – Vicenza from 2005 to 2015, acting as art director of special events and symposia for the architecture and landscaping sections. The fair central theme was wellness and sustainability.
I habitually hold courses, workshops, events and work in place marketing, collaborating with Confartigianato (Verona, Vicenza). I have participated in many symposia as a speaker, both in scientific and popular contexts.
I consider it fundamental to address inhabitants by providing them with the right tools for critical understanding: this way, it is possible to promote quality effectively.
From 1995 to 2005, I taught at IUAV University, where I also worked as an expert researcher alongside Valeriano Pastor first and subsequently Francesco Venezia. In 1997 I was a Professor at the third Curso Superior de “Arquitectura del Ambiente” - organised by the Fondazione CEPA (CEPA Foundation) - La Plata – in Argentina. From 2009 till 2020, I taught sustainable interior design at ISAI Design Academy in Vicenza.
I am a member of INBAR (Istituto Nazionale di Bioarchitettura), AIAPP (Italian Association of Landscape Architecture) and I am presently Treasurer of the Triveneto Emilia Romagna Section. I have been part of the Council of the Architects Association (O.A.P.P.C.) in Vicenza since 2018, and I am currently in charge of the Culture Committee.
In 2012 (2nd ed. 2014), I published the book “Una vita in tandem. Ecologia come sentimento” ("A life in tandem. Ecology as feeling") with List editions.
2020 saw the organisation of a narration/play open to adults and children alike, titled "La seconda conferenza degli animali e il Grande Algoritmo" ("The second conference of animals and the Great Algorithm"), currently on show.
Bi-tango, the workshop of Argentine Tango I founded with Stefano Gambarotto in 2008, equally forms part of this research: it deals with the conversation between bodies and space.
I prefer the word imagination to creativity.
