In 1997 he founded his own studio engaging in projects and achievements in Italy and Europe for public and private areas. The study addresses the different issues with a twofold methodological approach: on the one hand, the relationship with architecture and the genius loci, in which the green system becomes an ideal unicum; on the other hand, the constant attention to environmental sustainability achieved through botanical research of essences that require low maintenance and minimal water consumption.
Terraces; restoration of historic gardens, environmental rehabilitation of commercial and industrial spaces; study of the landscape for new urban settlements; sports fields; museum spaces outdoors are some of the issues that involve the study in their respective scales.
